I wanted to invite all teachers to check out the review website that I created.  It might be helpful to teachers that have large numbers of vocabulary terms.   Play the demo game on the homepage to better understand the concept.  The top left card will say "find this" - click on the match and clear the board.  My students love using it to review vocabulary.  You can create your own games for free.

Chris, unfortunately no, at that time it's not possible and not planned.

can the "old groups" be made into "new groups" or do we have to start all over again?

Same as Jennifer :) I love Facebook ... I really do, but for distractions.

Im not saying that facebook is a bad thing I', still learning on how to use it and wanted some opions on the best way to use it with the least amount of distractions.

Chris, Facebook has improved the way groups are functioning, if you create a new group, members will get the updates of the group directly on their news feed, so no more missing them.
Yet, I suspect that the distractions will still be there, and that all the videos, pictures and posts they love will make them still "forget" about their groups or fan pages for that matter. just my opinion.

We;ve been running into the issue that parents/student forget to check their "groups" when using fb. We will most likely go to either a "team" account or a fan page next year. What I do have to say is my team (I teach in a middle school) loves it and parents love all the videos, pictures, and posts from all 4 of our teachers that edit it. It's been a great test year.

That was my concern; that students would get very distracted.

Jennifer, you can always create groups for that, but the real problem is that Facebook is full of distractions. If you use it in your classroom for studying a topic, you can be sure that your students are going to do something else (watch pictures, videos, play a game, or chat with their friends)

I talk to more and more people today that have a facebook. When using it in the classroom. Are there certin pages that you create for the students just so they can only talk to the people in the classrrom without talking to all of the firends?
