Click through to read the rest of the post (it talks about “living Facebook” outside of the classroom as well). It’s a pretty interesting read.

I begin the experiment with the concept of “I like,” “Let me comment,” and offering a thumbs up when I approved of a person’s statement.  Students recognize the experiment within the first five minutes of class.  A few roll their eyes. Most of them joined in, if for nothing else, a little end of the year novelty.

I begin our Philosophical Friday with, “Are people born creative?”

“I think it’s our limitations that lead to creativity,” a boy responds.  Ten students offer a “thumbs up.”

A girl shakes her head and adds, “Just to comment on what he said.  I disagree.  Little kids have few restrictions and they are really creative.  But school and parents are the ones who force us to not be creative.”  Eight students give a thumbs-up and I can sense that she’s hurt.
