Facebook Back in the News for Educators, courtesy of ASCD SmartBrief

  • New app aims to turn Facebook into a study tool
    The Facebook application Hoot.me seeks to turn Facebook into a study tool for students. The app diverts students away from their wall and news feed and asks them, "What are you working on?" It then connects students with live group-study sessions on their chosen topic. The tool also could prove useful for educators, providing a way for them to hold "virtual office hours" for students, the tool's CEO and co-founder, Michael Koetting, says.
