How to: Facebook groups for EFL/EAP.
As a follow-up to yesterday’s post on EAP 2014 at the University of Potsdam and my Facebook groups for EAP presentation, here are 2 videos to give details of how to actually go about setting it all up. This first tutorial outlines the steps you take to create a Facebook group to use with your English students. The focus is on creating a space for sharing and collaborating, while encouraging students to use English outside of the classroom using a tool that they are familiar with. All this is possible without teachers or students needing to ‘friend’ anyone.
This second tutorial gives you some quick ideas for getting started. You can post pictures, questions and tasks, create polls or add a document.
Here is the presentation as a PDF. I have included a number of suggestions that I found helped the project really get off the ground. Copy FBshort
