Social media final presentation

  1. 1. Social Media in the Classroom Brandi Hamnett Final Presentation
  2. 2. My PLN before this course• I had ZERO understanding of creating a social network – not on facebook, never saw a tweet, never heard of web 2.0…• I was known by my friends and family as the person who NEVER knows the latest news because I was so the opposite of “in the know” – not on facebook, twitter, etc.• My PLN was chatting with another teacher – something I often didn’t even do on a daily basis• My circle was so small – home and classroom – and on a good day, the teachers in my hallway/pod
  3. 3. Twitter• This is a really new concept for me – I had never even read a Tweet before• I still feel a little unsure about participation• I think I’ll feel better after I observe for a little while
  4. 4. Diigo• I love to research, both for personal and professional purposes• Diigo helps me organize my bookmarks, make notes, and access my information from different computers• Not comfortable sharing yet, but am interested in the group “google tools” and am finding helpful sites using others’ bookmarks
  5. 5. Google Groups - joiningLove the Google tools education group – so helpful for someone just learning tointegrate this into my classroom. Most essential tip – for form tests make the firstquestion the student’s name.
  6. 6. Google Groups - creating• I plan to also use google groups once school begins to give the same permissions to a group of people for some of my google docs• For example: I created a google group for my grade level partners/PLC team to use for collaboration• For example: I think it would be useful to make a classroom parent group for sharing information
  7. 7. Professional SocialNetwork – Classroom 2.0• Joined Classroom 2.0 as my first professional social network• Posted an introduction, updated my profile, and tweeted my membership to get started
  8. 8. My PLN after this course: A much larger circle• Good old email – home and school• Twitter• Classroom 2.0 professional social networking site• Diigo• Google Reader• Google Groups• My circle even includes teachers from other countries! That’s quite a change from home, class, and maybe hallway…
  9. 9. Reflection• The three stage explanation helped me to understand where I am in the process of creating my PLN• Having had so little experience all of these platforms were a lot to take in – I definitely need some time to just get used to all the platforms• Now I have so many options as I begin to move towards collaboration and contribution in my PLN
