Another one for the books! 🙂
I use Smore (more a web 2.0 tool than social media I guess) as a parent newsletter for my online classes and am now planning to use it in my f2f classroom..
I am piqued to use twitter with my classes but am really unsure as to how to use it, and how to keep my kids both safe and respectful (good digital citizenry!).. thoughts and suggestions are welcome! George Couros (Innovator’s Mindset) uses it all the time….
Back on board after 3 weeks battling an extraterrestrial influenza (no earthly treatment or medicine had any effect!)
In Looking Back @ Social Media & Cloud Computing I focus on Cloud Computing as the larger concept to teach responsible online use of any tool. Hope you enjoy.
A short post, providing a link to Department of Education (Vic) resources for cyber safety.
Thanks so much for providing the link to Australian DE digital safety resources. I have US ones, but having a wider, global approach will make my Digital Citizenship lessons even more meaningful.
Just when I think I have things figured out I learn about Finstas! Oh my.
What a wonderful post, Emily. You are truly modeling appropriate use of social media for students by what you do in the classroom! And you family picture is beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

What great guidance for newbies and even those of us who are more comfortable with social media. I may “borrow” some of your comments for my Digital Citizenship lessons!

A very insightful post, Nina. You give us all something to think about! I, too, have pulled back from Twitter and also Facebook to focus on more deep-thinking activities. I do hope you find an enjoyable full-time position.
