Facebook and the Whole Child?

The power of the internet is clear on when  you take time to read this article.  A great argument for including this social network in your classroom.

Facebook and the Whole Child Initiative
More than 2,200 people are learning more about ASCD's Whole Child Initiative via Facebook. Since the start of the school year, roughly 300 new "fans" joined the association's Whole Child Facebook page to get news, videos and updates on how each child can be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged. Using the social-networking service, ASCD connects with supporters of whole child education from around the globe, including Egypt, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Australia and Canada as well as 24 of our 50 whole child partners.
