In the recent weeks after working with speaker, Will Richardson, many of our teachers at EMS have embraced using social media in the classroom. Staff members are beginning to unveil the power of using blogs. wikis, back channel discussion rooms, and microblogs to reach their students and to inspire learning. Social Studies teachers have been using blog feeds to discuss the 2012 election and national educational policy changes outside of the classroom. Language arts educators are experimenting with Today’s Meet as a way for students to collaborate about their writing while creating monologues and one-act plays. Overall, Twitter has become our most popular communication tool with teachers beginning to develop their own PLNs as a way of self-directed professional development. To assist our teachers in using twitter more efficiently, I am attaching a link that explains how Twitter is organized using hashtags. Enjoy the read and we look forward to you joining our growing professional learning community.
