The best Facebook pages for EdTech enthusiasts

Facebook might not be the hip place to be anymore and it’s remarkable growth has certainly slowed, but it’s still the behemoth of social media and almost half the people you know will be on there, somewhere. And, importantly, it’s still a great way to share and pick up ideas. And if you want to pick up ideas and opinions on Education Technology, these are the pages to 'like' and learn.

Facebook in Education

The daddy of them all, in that it looks, self-referentially, at the ways in which Facebook is being used in the education industry. For the sheer scale of number (650k+), there’s not much interaction, but it’s a useful reference point to get a peek at things happening in the wider world.

Daily Genius

A hybrid offering of content 'designed to make you smarter'. A strong thread of educational content, but plenty of broader stuff too - educational in a wider sense. The Monthly Genius 'digital box' is intriguing and worth checking out too.

ISTE

ISTE

The ISTE is the International Society for Technology in Education and the tone of their page is exactly what that suggests - dry and more than a little academic. But there’s good stuff in their posts. The posts they reference are riddled with rigour. It makes you cleverer just knowing that they are there.

#EdChat

Not so much a Facebook page as a set of prompts to a Twitter conversation. #EdChat, as the hashtag indicates, is a Twitter discussion amongst educators, which happens every Tuesday. The Facebook page is a useful prompt on the topics and adds back-up resources.

Edutopia

There’s a whiff of the self-satisfied here, with the posting of ‘empowering’ slogans, but within all that, there’s some good stuff posted here which can genuinely inspire you to think about education in a different way. There’s plenty of interaction too. And who doesn’t like the occasional empowering infographic?
