Facebook Summit 2011, an Excellent Academic Use of the Popular Internet App

Come meet Aristotle Bedford, Vlad Dracul Bedfordii, and Tommy Jefferson Bedford … and the teacher and students who created them!


Canadian 9th Grade ELA Teacher Richard Cossette developed this highly engaging and fun project for his students, with Facebook playing a central role. Mr. Cossette did a wonderful job of defining and executing this, and I am delighted to be able to share his work here.

I am going to publish this post in two parts – the first part will lay out the basic concept behind the project, and the assignment. Part two (which I will publish next Sunday) will provide examples of some of the work done by students who participated in the project, and a look at the how this project met specific learning objectives met.
