Social media enables us to capture students’ learning artifacts so that we can assess learning. We can also use social media to document teachers’ activity in their Personal Learning Networks for which they would be accountable to create for their professional development. These can be thought of as students’ and teachers’ LearnStreams. Motivated by our experience with lifestreaming, we can aggregate our social media streams to generate LearnStreams! Once we have these LearnStreams, we can publish them to demonstrate our students’ learning and teachers’ professional development in order to “tell our story” in a more compelling way to our constituents who we hope would then advocate for us as we build financial and political support for education.
