clever idea to start the school year, especially with those who have school provided devices. They would have either an introduction or a refresher course. The game aspect of it would be particularly attractive .

Thoughtful article to help you think outside the box with your images and style of presentation.

Love this. I think we ALL need to revisit presentation skills and what can engage an audience. I am working on that with my 6th graders.

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - | A Reader's Retort | Scoop.it

Social media is here to stay.

No matter how much we lament a loss of privacy, too much screen time, superficial identity, or countless other worries, media has been around since language was invented, and we have always sought to make that media as social as locally available technology would allow.

From chisels and tablets to the printing press to radio and television to twitter and Facebook, as long as we continue to have thoughts and ideas, we will continue to seek to publish and socialize them with others.
