This lesson has me intrigued as it uses a mobile phone and Microsoft Tag. I make sure all my students have a windows live id and a google id (using our google apps for domain) so this wouldn’t be a problem for me. I like the idea of using mobile phones in esafety lessons.
Teaching effective writing requires a lot of proofing, editing, feedback, and revision. What if you could harness the power of students, peer review, and Web 2.0 tools to supercharge your writing? You can. In addition to the traditional writing taught in classrooms, a new form of writing is here. Collaborative writing is fundamentally different from traditional essay writing in that students should know how to create content, edit, and discuss to produce authentic, collaborative work. As a teacher who coordinates wikis where thousands of students edit and co-create, Vicki can show you how collaborative content creation looks and how it aligns with the Common Core State Standards.
Free online conferences are an amazing part of the new learning landscape. I’ll be presenting at Eye on School Success in March on Tuesday, March 20 at 4:15 but this is the link to many different presenters at this conference. Todd Whitaker is keynoting this one and Barbara Blackburn is also presenting as well as many other great authors who I don’t know personally yet.
