Three Facebook Groups Connecting Teachers

There are numerous places online for teachers to connect with their global colleagues. Ning groups like Classroom 2.0, Twitter, and Plurk are popular places for building professional learning networks. One place that might be overlooked by some teachers because it might not seem "professional enough" is Facebook. I'm currently a member of three Facebook groups for teachers. I've made professional connections with at least one person from each of these groups. These groups are 1. "You Know You're a Teacher When." 2. "I'm a teacher and yes I deserve my holidays." 3. "Teaching is a REAl job."
