  • Before looking at what to do with these realities and how we can translate into classroom activities, let’s see how the internet involved.
  • Your students, our students, actually are in one place: online.  More precisely, on social networks.  Specifically, on MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and now  But you may not be sure exactly how to reach them online, when to use which tool, and how to do it all safely and effectively.  So below are seven stellar strategies for maximizing your institution’s college-connected goals through social media. Learn the lexicon .  Web 1.0, 2.0, 18.0?  What’s the difference?  It’s simple.  Web 1.0 was about information .  Just seeing someone else’s info on your computer screen was a revolution itself.  Then Web 2.0 ushered in interactivity .  The user now could affect the content on the computer screen - by uploading a video to YouTube or posting a comment on a blog.  That exploded the amount of content online - and with Web 3.0, we now are able to aggregate all that content.  Thanks to feeds, widgets and command central home pages, Web 3.0 content is portable .  It comes where we invite it, and we can add it to other desirable content in a location of our choosing. Make Web 2.0…Web You .0. You don’t have to try everything at once!  A blog is a great solution if you have a focused message to share that you want students or community members to respond to (like this “CLIC with College” blog you’re reading).  That’s why advisors all have blogs on our CLIC pages.  A wiki is just a web site that any member can easily edit.  So they are perfect for group projects (as on Wetpaint ) or for interactive student and family tracking ( PBWiki offers strong page-level privacy settings).  And a social network is a great solution for letting your community rally around your organization’s mission and brand.  But before you create your own network (using Ning , for instance), explore the popular networks that your students quite certainly already are on. Meet up on MySpace. If you serve fairly young students (up to 10th grade), chances are very good that they already are on MySpace .  You can create a simple Web presence there in under five minutes and invite your students to be your “friends.”  Don’t worry - they’ll be thrilled to friend you!  You can upload video, add a logo, create a blog and more.  And you can proactively keep up with your kids via their own MySpace posts and musings. Plan a program on Facebook. If your student population is 11th grade to college age, or you serve adults (parents, business people, etc.), you are in Facebook territory (age 35+ is their key growing population).  Be sure to create a Facebook “Group” (as opposed to a personal page), and invite your students and community members to become your “fans.”  When’s the best time to use Facebook?  To plan an event! You can blast everyone in under five minutes, and they can help you organize, spread the word, and even post pictures, video and updates afterwards (if you allow it). Broadcast to your base on YouTube. If you haven’t already, search YouTube right now to see how many videos already are playing about your organization!  Schools, trust that your marching band, athletic events, aca-decas and more are all posted and enthusiastically replied to, thanks to someone’s cell phone video camera.  So take a moment to create a YouTube “Channel” for your organization, and in under five minutes, you can search for all of the video on the site that relates to your group and amass it on your channel’s home page.  Consider having competitions for students to capture special events and post them to YouTube - don’t worry, they can’t add things to your channel themselves, but you can post the finalists and winning videos after everyone has voted! Microblog to your base with Twitter. Do not underestimate this new power player.  Twitter lets users blast short text messages called “tweets” with minute-by-minute updates of what they’re doing.  Tweets can be received on cell phones, in chat applications (like Skype ) or online.  If you want to test how popular and effective Twitter is, just ask a student to tweet your next football game, play-by-play, and see what kind of response you get!  To get started, you can create a Twitter account in under one minute, then invite your students and community members to “follow” you.

    23. 23. Setting the Bar High <ul><li>Find an exemplary class blog, direct your students to it, and give them time to read over the post and comments. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask them for feedback—which comments are powerful and why? Which ones are less captivating and why? When does the blog get good and why? </li></ul><ul><li>Get a discussion going—why do we blog? How is it different from turning in a piece of writing to your teacher? Or having a large class discussion? </li></ul>
    24. 24. What We’ve Liked About the Blog <ul><li>Quiet students are given a powerful voice. </li></ul><ul><li>Students grow more adept at reacting to each other’s ideas. </li></ul><ul><li>Class is truly extended beyond the walls of the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Students produce information on the web instead of passively absorbing it. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology is integrated into every subject. </li></ul><ul><li>Students take their words seriously and begin to understand what it means to be published. </li></ul><ul><li>Students just like it. A lot. </li></ul>
    25. 25. Establishing Expectations <ul><li>Have your students create the class blog expectations, or have your blog expectations ready to go. </li></ul><ul><li>Print out or direct them to the AHS “Safe Blogging Policy” as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Talk about blog safety; emphasize that the blogs are linked directly to the school and need to follow the class guidelines as well. Let them know that administrators can and will read their personal blogs. </li></ul>
    26. 26. Send in the Reinforcements… <ul><li>Students need feedback, they get excited when they see their work published. If possible approve their comments instantly. </li></ul><ul><li>Try having a blog for homework that night for immediate reinforcement of what they have just learned. </li></ul><ul><li>Try to give them immediate positive feedback; bring up their blogs the next day and commend them on what they did well. </li></ul>
    27. 27. A BIG Suggestion <ul><li>Use the blog to replace something that you’re already doing; don’t use it to add. </li></ul><ul><li>Never blog for blogging’s sake. Think about how the blog can be used to enhance an assignment (links to audio/video clips, artwork, online texts, other blogs, etc.). </li></ul>
    28. 28. Do a Little Exploring <ul><li>Take a little time to check out some class blogs that have worked pretty well. </li></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What do you like? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you not understand or question? </li></ul><ul><li>How can you use this in your classes? </li></ul>
    29. 29. Why Wiki’s <ul><li>What do you know? </li></ul><ul><li>Why Wiki’s? </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Where are you? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What do you want to know? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul>
