PART ONE. BACK UP A LITTLE BIT
- “The common sense and manners your grandmother taught you”
- Late Pass
PART TWO. BUILDING PORTFOLIO
Everyone should have a professional website. Today, we’ll all create professional websites using about.me.
Today you’ll post your background pictures and write 1-2 paragraphs of your professional biography. Work with a partner to help each other write something short, but interesting for your biography. We’ll also add some of the “apps” – like Facebook, Twitter, and some links – like Pinterest. You can view some student examples from the previous semester here.
PART THREE. SETTING UP TWITTER ACCOUNT & DROPBOX
- Create a Dropbox folder for EDIT2000 class assignments and link it to your About.me page
- Create a professional Twitter account
- follow @polibell and don’t forget # edit2000chang
PART FOUR: TOPICS OF INTEREST
Before today’s class you viewed several issues of Learning and Leading with Technology by the International Society for Education. This professional group also publishes the ISTE Standards for K12 Students and Teachers. We’ll take a few minutes to look at those standards and talk about how they relate to the topics you viewed.
In small groups, share your topics/articles. Using the ISTE standards, identify which set of standards your topics address. Organize your groups topics within these standards. Use the list of educational hashtags to identify hashtags relevant to your topics. Be prepared to share what you’ve organized with the class.
- Read Chapter One from Howland, J.L., Jonassen,D., & Marra, R.M. (2011). Meaningful learning with technology. (Fourth ed.). Boston, M.A. : Allyn. You can access it from our Readings folder. We are using Dropbox to organize our readings for this semester. You do not have to have a Dropbox account to view files in the folder or to download files.
- Be prepared to respond to these questions in class on Tuesday: What was the big idea or takeaway you had from the Meaningful Learning with Technology chapter? Was there anything that surprised you?
