BloggingLessonPlans.pdf

Matt Hoge's insight:

This is a resource for blogging lesson plans used at high schools to encourage writing and other activities.

 

One of the lessons I really like is blogging your value and beliefs.  Seminary students need to keep a journal and so this can be another interactive avenue for them to communicate with their classmates.

Matt Hoge's insight:

This article provides research collected for using social media but more importantly describes learning activities used in curriculum and the success they experienced.

 

One of the learning activities I think would translate well into seminary is using Ning in the classroom.  This provides students with the ability to create avatars and encourage participation.

Educators are integrating Facebook, Ning, Twitter, and other sites into K-12 life despite concerns about privacy, behavior.
Matt Hoge's insight:

This article explains specific ways that educators are using social networking for learning.

 

Among the many ideas from this article, I really think using the FaceBook page in seminary will be very useful, we already have a FaceBook page and I think we can improve the ways we use it.

Kentucky educators use internet to try to keep students learning as the number of missed school days continues to grow.
Matt Hoge's insight:

This article describes ways high school teachers help students continue to learn on snow days.

 

This article shows a great way to incorporate lessons while school is out.  In seminary this could be used for make up work for missed days as well as in snow days.

5 Unique Uses of Twitter in the Classroom - US News | Social Networking Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Educators are finding creative ways to bring the microblogging platform into their lesson plans.
Matt Hoge's insight:

This article shows five ways Twitter has been used in the classroom.  Each of these actual projects/lesson/courses are great resources for practical application of social network learning.  

 

In the Seminary classroom I can adopt these practices and use them for lessons, such as personifying people from the scriptures.

Matt Hoge's insight:

This document is a huge resource for social media projects!  Not only does it showcase 3-4 learning activities using social media but provides a whole curriculum! 

 

One of the ideas on here I really like that I think can be taken into the seminary classroom is "Twitter-Tuesday".  I like the idea of students tweeting the things they learned from the scriptures that day.

Meet Mormons. Search & Find Personal Experiences | Mormon.org | Social Networking Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Discover Mormons by location, age and more who share their personal experience.
Matt Hoge's insight:

Social media website that connects people to Mormons they know.

 

In seminary students can use this site to create a profile their senior year and share it through their social media connections.

Share a Christ-centered message with others

Share a Christ-centered message with others | Social Networking Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Invite others to come unto Christ by sharing inspired messages through social media.
Matt Hoge's insight:

This Easter activity encouraged LDS members to share a Christ-centered message with others using social media.  One way they spread this message was through the #BecauseOfHim in which they would share their thoughts about Jesus Christ.


I actually participated with this in our class and it was a great experience.  The students became excited when it became "trending" and they felt like they were part of something bigger.
