After we read about Facebook in first grade, I made a post saying that I had contemplated the idea this past summer, but hadn't gotten it off the ground. Today I went onto Facebook to create a page for my class (not necessarily to use this year, but to see what it could be like next year). However, I didn't want my regular facebook account to be the host for my students, so I selected that I did not have a facebook account and put in my school email address (public to my students anyway). Facebook said that they were sending a confirmation email to the address given, but it never came.
I really do not want to use my existing account to host this page, but I have set up a temporary one to play around with it's features. I have invited some of my cohort-classmates to join so that I can learn about the conversation aspects of the group site.
Has anyone else tried to make a new Fbook account using a school email address and failed as I have?
