Now that we have talked about BYOD I thought this would be a good time to talk about using social media as a teaching tool. This is something I have not tried until this year. Last week I started a Facebook page and Pinterest page for my High School Choir Classes. We are not using this in class but as an extension of the classroom. Find an article about teaching with social media, post the link, and share your reflections.
We have now talked about what kids think they should know. Now we need to cover what the state and the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) say/mandate students should know. These standards are meant to be integrated in to all classes and NOT just taught in the computer classroom. These standards will be used in projects that you will be making in this class so please look them over. I know that these standards are meant for k-12 education and most of you work with higher ed. You should look at these as what you students should be able to do when you get them in college. Read all the stands below. Do they cover what they need to? Are they missing anything? Can schools really do this?
ISTE NETS-S Standards
Information and Communications Technology Literacy Grade-Level Expectations (MO grades K-8)
Information and Communications Technology Literacy Course Expectations (MO grades 9-12)
After are comments on the Student Bill of Rights last week I thought another good topic for us would be Bring Your On Device. I do not have not had to deal with this yet but this week will be my first day with students BYOD. Find an article about BYOD and share it and your reflections with the class. I will be sharing mine after Wednesday and our first BYOD day.
This blog is for class conversations for Ed 514 at Central Methodist University. We invite input form other teachers about how they use technology in their classrooms.
