I LOVE social media… There I said it!!! I love connecting with old friends on Facebook, reading tweets on Twitter, my hashtag game is on point (most of the time), and I enjoy looking at Instagram posts just as much as I enjoy posting! I also adore watching my daughter and her friends create Musical.ly videos. My husband and I have been known to watch an embarrassingly amount of YouTube videos just to get a few good laughs in! Because of this Tech class I even plan on continuing to blog while teaching in order to keep the parents involved and up to date on what we are doing in class! Technology has a snowballing presence in our lives so it only makes sense to have more technology in the classroom. The more technology we have in the classroom the more we can teach our children how to use it responsibly, as well as to use it for success in the future. In my classroom I plan to let the students use Wikispaces Classroom for group projects. I really feel using Edublogs would be a blast for the students, and I would like to work this in to my curriculum for creative writing projects. Edublogs is also a great way to teach students how to address a particular audience. YouTube for schools also is a social media platform I would like to sue in order for my students to have access to info on TED Talks and Kahn Academy. Students get excited about being able to use technology in the classroom and with the ever evolving world of technology students also don’t get bored with it!
