Social Media PPT - Marcella Reppenhagen

  1. 1. Social Media For Educators<br />Marcella Reppenhagen<br />July 2010<br />
  2. 2. Tools I used…<br />Blog on Wordpress.com as an alternative project to the Ning.<br />Twitter<br />Delicious<br />Animoto<br />
  3. 3. Most Useful Tool<br />I have had experience working with all of the tools except for Twitter. I strongly believe that all of the tools are extremely useful to me, however I’m really excited right now about the benefits of Twitter.<br />I love how I can connect with other educators, stay updated on educational issues, and be able to collaborate and share ideas. <br />Twitter is an extraordinary tool that I believe is revolutionizing educational practice. I am happy to be a part of it!<br />
  4. 4. Successes<br />I feel really confident in the tools used in this course. <br />I am most proud of myself using Twitter. I didn’t think it would be beneficial at first because I was limited to think that it was only used to let people know random things about what you were doing. I was completely wrong!<br />Twitter is really changing how educators collaborate and connect. Once I started, I couldn’t stop! I was eager to keep reading ideas, share information, and see what others found useful.<br />I’m excited to be a part of this PLN!<br />
  5. 5. Challenges <br />I had a really hard time with Ning.<br />This is the second time I tried to create a Ning and unfortunately I didn’t find it useful to me. <br />The setup was confusing and I found it much more difficult to connect with people. <br />I am happy that I got to create a blog as an alternative to the Ning because I know I will get great use out of that for my parents at school, and it is more user-friendly. <br />
  6. 6. Moodle<br />I really enjoy Moodle learning!<br />I like working at my own pace and the setup of the projects makes sense.<br />Rich Kiker does a fantastic job of organizing the readings and tutorials to allow for a very user-friendly learning environment! The videos and articles are fantastic at helping understand how to complete the assignments. <br />
  7. 7. Blog<br />My first project was a Wordpress.com blog for my parents at school.<br />I created this as a way to connect with parents and share about what is happening in our classroom. <br />http://struble5th.wordpress.com/<br />
  8. 8. Twitter<br />Twitter is such a great tool to connect, collaborate, and learn from other educators.<br />My twitter account: @marcellarepp<br />http://twitter.com/marcellarepp<br />
  9. 9. Delicious<br />I love Delicious! It is such a useful tool that I use on a weekly basis. It is so great that I can save anything online and access it anywhere!<br />My Delicious bookmarks:<br />http://delicious.com/mbreppenhagen<br />
  10. 10. Animoto<br />Animoto is revolutionizing how we share photos and videos. It is easy to use, creative, and makes beautiful projects. I love it!<br />My Animoto video of my sister who just got engaged:<br />http://animoto.com/play/rrorrh0zXTHNLipUH0MsKA<br />
