Social media for educators

  1. 1. Social Mediafor EducatorsSue Kanopka
  2. 2. Most Useful Tool I love being organized! My house and my classroom are very simple, tidy and neat. However, my computer isn’t up to those same standards yet. That is until now. My diigo account for bookmarking and sharing is the tool that I find the most useful. Not, only will it help me reach organization goals for my favorite sites, but I get to share and learn from other professionals. Check out my page here:http://www.diigo.com/user/mrskanopka
  3. 3. Twitter Using social media sites is something that I have steered away from for a long time. I was apprehensive about using Twitter until I realized that I would be accessing professional information. Twitter offers a new facet for my teaching. It is a way for me to help and learn from other professional teachers. Once I got the hang of it, I actually enjoyed posting and hope to get more followers as time goes on! Check out my twitter page:https://twitter.com/SueKanopka
  4. 4. Google+ I love the personal learning network that Google has in Google+. I can create circles, write posts and even “hang out” with others. Right now, there isn’t much activity here, but I know it will be a useful tool once I share with others in my school. It will be a great way to collaborate. Check out my Google+ site:https://plus.google.com/105886266432711150548/posts
  5. 5. Web Tools I love finding ways to present lessons in a motivating way for my students. As a 5th grade teacher, we have the students sit through a back to school, grade level assembly to explain all the things that they will take part in because they are the oldest kids in the building. Now, I can give that speech using ZooBurst and the online book I created. Check out my book, titled Snapshots of 5th Grade:http://www.zooburst.com/zb_books-viewer.php?book=zb03_50203d99dd203
  6. 6. Successes The biggest achievement for me was using diigo and putting the tab into my toolbar so I can bookmark with ease. I will use this tool all the time and I hope that it will help me stay more organized with my computer. I am excited about Google+ and hope that as the school year gets moving, I can motivate others to join my community and use it with my parents, students and peers!
  7. 7. Challenges Twitter was the hardest tool for me to use because it is not a one time deal. Twitter needs constant checking, uploading and tweeting for it to be a worthwhile tool. As I learn about social media, I am coming out of my shell as an educator and I know that it will just take a little more time for me to get comfortable with this format.
  8. 8. Online Learning Social Media for Educators is a class that I knew I needed to broaden my horizons as a small scale teacher. I know that the tools I learned about will enhance my teaching and my professional learning. I love online learning and I love the moodle format for this class. Learning online and completing my assignments on moodle is a perfect fit for a busy mom, wife and teacher like me!
  9. 9. Future Applications The year ahead will be so much different for me and for my students. They are in store for great technology lessons. Right off the bat, we will use ZooBurst. Professionally, I can’t wait to use diigo, Google+ and twitter in action as I am teaching, collaborating and sharing with parents!
