Connect With Facebook Live
Facebook Live is a way to broadcast a video in real time, posted directly to your wall.
Viewers — your Facebook friends — receive a notification when you start broadcasting,
and can comment and give immediate feedback.
Educators are using Facebook Live to connect with other educators. They share
classroom management tips, lesson plans and other resources. Most promote the topic,
along with the day and time when they will be "live," so you can go to their Facebook
page to tune in. Some even bring on other educators to have a panel-type broadcast. If
you miss the live video, Facebook posts the video and you're still able to access it.
Interested in broadcasting your own video? Make sure you have strong Wi-Fi, good
lighting and a fully charged phone or device (Facebook Live only works on an app on
your phone or tablet). Check out how NEA utilized Facebook Live for their November
2016 conversation "Addressing Bias and Hate in Schools" at bit.ly/2iXGo0A.
