    • Give students enough time to brainstorm the topic in order for them to create a story line.
  • 13. Why is THIS Important?
    • You can use this new technique for different reasons
    • You have them dig deeper into a subject and have them create a storyline in order to present to the class a video of what they learned in the subject. We really want them to recreate what they’ve learned.
    • It’s creative and new ways of teaching! It’s better than having them memorize the textbook. Students are learning by creating the storyline and making sure it’s accurate.

      • This isn’t a research report nor is it a step by step math or science equation
      • This is where student’s can interact with each other and edit their information.
      • A great way for teachers to also check student’s work and edit them as they go along.
  • 17. Twitter
    • We are at that time where social media is the new way of communicating
    • We update our status’s and following people on twitter.
    • Most student’s tend to have a twitter page so they are able to follow their friends or even their favorite celebrities
    • But, how about following their teachers?
  • 18. Using Twitter in the Classroom
    • Many student’s go home and spend hours doing other things rather than doing homework
    • They tend to go online and check out their messages on social networks
    • What if teachers had their own pages and used them to remind students of what happened in class or about their homework assignments?
    • Here’s an example post
    • “ REMINDER: Homework due tomorrow…Pages __ to___ due tomorrow!”
  • 19. Facebook
    • Another social media that so many student’s use to see their friends updates.
    • Teachers can update their status, show examples, add photos, and the list goes on and on.
