A change for students: Many students are already using Facebook and have become familiar with it. Helping students that don’t interact on Facebook can be beneficial to get them started. Here are some suggestions:
Change management cont.
• Educate – post how other educators have used Facebook successfully for educational purposes, a predictor of program success is staff training (Romano, 1990)
• Recommend a trial run – using Facebook for a period to determine effectiveness
• Setting guidelines and rules for using Facebook
• Share social media and technology resources list and sites (Schmitt, 2012):
ANA’s Social Networking Principles Toolkit
CDC’s Health Communicator’s Social Media Toolkit
Change management cont.
Innovators need to see the relative advantage of using Facebook (Romano, 1990) . Innovators then need to see how compatible Facebook will be with their existing values and experiences. Questions that can arise are: How complex will it be to use?
Does it have the ability to be tested?
What are the results of using Facebook?
Change Management cont.
The innovators then influence the early adopters who are the opinion leaders (Rogers, 2003). Rogers (2003) suggest gathering information about the innovation (Facebook) and implementing it into practice. Here are some suggestions for faculty:
Link to Facebook Group
Thank You for Watching
• Posting information on how to create an account.
• Welcoming questions.
• Having rules on Netiquette posted.
• Encouraging those that already use Facebook to assist those who are not familiar with it.
A change for faculty: The Diffusion of Innovation theory suggests beginning with the innovators (us).
Masters and PhD level nursing and education students
prior knowledge and skill: novice to expert Facebook users as 1:9 people in the world use Facebook (Morse, 2012)
