What are the benefits of Facebook to students?

First, by encouraging students to interact online through Facebook, teachers and lecturers can help their students gain digital skills. They can model how to comment and share online content correctly and can also use Facebook as a teaching tool for distinguishing between real and fake news, something that will come in handy.

Why is Facebook important for students?

Facebook is an important part of most people's lives, so it's not surprising that it would be an important part of students' lives as well. It can help them with digital skills and content creation and allow teachers to model correct usage of digital tools in class and lecture rooms. They can also use Facebook as an educational tool.

Top 5 Ways Facebook Helps Students

  1. Students can post questions and get answers about homework, coursework, school subjects or any topics from other classmates and friends who may have experience with those topics.
  2. Students can post questions and get answers from teachers or lecturers.
  3. With Facebook groups lecturers can create public discussion spaces.
  4. Lecturers can use groups as private spaces for student discussions, not broadcasting all of these conversations on their main feed.
  5. Lecturers can join in with conversations by creating live video streams that allow them to answer student's questions 4-6 sentences.

Learning how to interact with digital content is vital for all students today; however, they often lack digital skills such as understanding fake news and how to be responsible online users in general.

What are the benefits of teaching with Facebook?

Lecturers should use Facebook as an online classroom. They can communicate with their students and engage them in discussions. They can also teach their students digital skills such as commenting, sharing, or identifying fake news. These skills will help prepare them for adulthood and future careers that involve technology.
