    25. 25. Performance Assessment Classroom Participation(10%): This course is designed to be interactive. The success of the course relies heavily on student participation, which implies that all class members will be fully prepared to participate both in class and on our class Ning. During each class students are expected to completely engage in class activities by exploring the online tools shared. It is expected that no student will have another website open; this includes email and sites such as Facebook. Cell phone use is for emergency only. If you fail to honor these guidelines your participation grade will be lowered. Absences will lower your participation grade.
    26. 26. Performance Assessment Teacher Blog (60%): All course participants will create a personal Weblog on our Ning Community, The Gordon Teacher’s Collaborative. You will be instructed how to add to and maintain your Weblog during the first class session. Blog entries addressing the assignments for each week are due according to the schedule. Late submissions will lower your grade. Blog posts should be well developed, thoroughly written entries demonstrating thoughtful reflection.
    27. 27. Students are expected to write a minimum of 30 blog posts (27 are specified including reading responses and RSS feed responses. The last three will either be assigned as we go or be free choice posts.) including to but not limited to the following: ★Reflections on readings and presentations ★Assignments: Diigo, videos & podcasts, Boardmaker ★Interesting Websites, Blogs or other technological tools ★Responses to the reading of blogs through your RSS feed Students will offer at minimum two comments per week on the blog entries of your classmates.
    28. 28. Students will offer at minimum five comments per week on the entries of your classmates. Participants will be shown how to develop an RSS (Really Simple Syndication). Course participants should maintain an RSS with a minimum of three blogs (from outside the class). In response to three different blog posts through the RSS feed, students will compose a minimum of three blog entries.

    33. 33. Let’s go to the Ning!
    34. 34. Twitter Best professional development for me 10 steps for Educators new to twitter The following was prepared by Joey Estes for a parent technology night.
    35. 35. Twitter is a Cool Tool •By joining Twitter, you can connect with people all over the world about things that interest you. •Imagine having literally thousands of people to bounce ideas off of, share best practices, and to give you recommendations for your next good read. •All information is shared via 140 characters or less.
    36. 36. Time to Join! •Once you have decided that Twitter is something you would like to explore, go to the website and sign up for an account. It’s free!
    37. 37. Following • Once you have joined, you will need to find people to follow. • This means that you find people who have the same interests as you, or people you find interesting. • Maybe you want to know what Time magazine has to say. • Or maybe your kids are interested in Justin Bieber.
    38. 38. Now it’s time to interact. •Anytime you see the @ sign in front of a name, it is like someone is talking to or about that person directly.
    39. 39. Links •You will often see a link that is a small jumble of letters and numbers. This is a smaller link taking the place of a super long link. •The real link looks like this: http://www.boston.com/community/groups.html?slPage=show BlogPost&slGroupKey=0cf59848-a680-4169-abad- ba4fa2c99f46&slBlogKey=Blog:c55b1ea4-61d4-4827-90ab- 574b44d3b002@D|9;36|CommGroup0cf59848-a680-4169- abad-ba4fa2c99f46|&slBlogPostKey=Blog:c55b1ea4-61d4- 4827-90ab-574b44d3b002@D|9;36|CommGroup0cf59848- a680-4169-abad-ba4fa2c99f46|Post:f7a50b5e-a2a9-4b6d-
