    Social networking communities are here to stay. Facebook has over 500 million users, while Twitter has over 200 million. That's not even counting blogs or YouTube video blogs.

Teachers warned away from Facebook, Twitter - The Sault Star - Ontario, CA - 64 views

  •  
    Keep that status update to yourself. That's the advice teachers are being given as the education system grapples with the expanding use of social media by students. Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation has been conducting workshops with high school teachers in Algoma in recent months after the Ontario College of Teachers issued an advisory that teachers should keep their distance from students when it comes to Facebook, Twitter and other electronic communication.

Fakebook: Fakebook. Create educational games and quizzes at classtools.net - 144 views

    I have. I had to enter compatibility mode in Internet Explorer. There is a button next to the address bar that you click on. It looks like a broken page. Here is a screen shot. That seemed to do it. http://screencast.com/t/OtIYLvy40

    Great web-based client ("front-end") for Twitter and Facebook. I prefer using this website over twitter.com because it automatically displays pictures and videos.
