JSE on Facebook and Twitter
To get the word out about JSE and to provide
opportunities for readers to share and discuss articles from JSE, a
Facebook group has been created. If
you have a Facebook account, you can access our new group and request to
join by going to https://www.facebook.com/groups/486553198048126/?ref=ts&fref=ts. Note that you can also simply do a search
within Facebook for “Journal of Statistics Education.” We will use this group to make
announcements related to JSE and to share links to articles that are
published in each new issue.
Hopefully, this will also become a place where you can connect with
other statistics educators.
There is also a Twitter account for JSE that you
can follow if you use Twitter (@JStatEd).
