Should I join the Exam Board Facebook sites?Watch this thread
Exam boards give out lots of good advice and help on their Facebook pages. They tell teachers how to get round rules they have to follow, which they aren’t allowed to put in the paperwork they send to schools. Last year, there were lots of tips between posters that helped everyone.
Last year, I set a homework task for all of my pupils to join OCR and AQA Facebook pages. About a third of them managed to get them into thinking they were teachers and let them join. Once they joined, they had a lot of “fun” on some of the threads as well as getting useful information.
It is my first homework for the coming year for year 10.
The first thing our computing teacher did last year (in the one lesson I had on the first day back before switching to stats) was to give us a list of facebook sites to join for homework. Anyone can join a facebook site but sometimes you need to be approved. I don't know why anyone would set them up if they were meant to be secure. Even I know that's pretty dumb as they aren't really secure. I am a member of lots of facebook sites for most of my other subjects. Some were set up by exam boards and some are just teachers swapping information and files and examples.
Definitely join if you can fool them into approving you as they can be helpful.
Unless of course, this person is no longer a teacher and has made the account to post this dribble as a way to stick it to the profession.
Don't falsify your identity (fraud), to gain access to social media groups made for teachers.
