I'm struggling quite a bit with communication with my parents. I teach Head Start 4 year olds on an Indian Reservation. Many of my parents are young, and all but two (out of 23) have email accounts. What do you think about making a Facebook page for my classroom? I would have status updates such as "Remember, tomorrow is a half day" "Sign up for the field trip soon!" "We are learning about plants today" or whatever. I could post photos from the classroom. And when parents logged into their Facebook accounts, we would be right there on their home page with information about their kids' class. I know many classrooms have webpages, but I don't know how often my parents would check in on a webpage or blog. But if it was right there on their FB, maybe they'd see it? Of course, it would be a private page and of course I'd still continune to send home papers and not rely on FB as the only means of communication. I havent pitched the idea to anyone else yet. What are your thoughts? By the way, I am a long time lurker... finally got brave enough to post! So hello!!
