Maybe you’re thinking about incorporating social media into the classroom this Fall? We’ve got a great opportunity for you with Schools App, a custom Facebook application just for San Jacinto College faculty, students, and staff. We have access to Schools App through a grant that the College received from the League of Innovation.
You may remember receiving an email from inigral.com inviting you to become members of San Jacinto College’s Schools App on Facebook. We’d like to take another opportunity to invite you to join us and learn more about Schools App.
Check out our website to view a short video on Schools App http://admin.sanjac.edu/schoolsapp.
This application runs completely separate from your normal Facebook profile. There’s NO need to create a separate Facebook profile for this purpose (actually, having two Facebook profiles is against Facebook’s terms of service). Anything you post within this application will not be displayed on your personal profile, and vice versa. If you’re interested in using social media in the classroom, this is a great way to test the waters. You can even create communities for your courses or student organizations.
We’re hoping you’ll join us on Schools App! More than 4,000 students and 200 faculty and staff members already have.
