Social Media: Are we teaching our kids to have the “Great Debate?” August 7, 2012 12:00 pm

Social Media: Are we teaching our kids to have the “Great Debate?”

I’ve had this kind of sick feeling in my stomach over the past few days. I don’t know if I’m getting tired of social media, over-loaded with social media, or just disenfranchised with it altogether. I’m just not satisfied with what’s happening there. And I’m starting to wonder if we’re setting the right example for our students with our own social media behavior.

EduNationCast #025: Should teachers friend their students?

It seems like this issue will never die, just when you think it will. Is it okay to be “friends” with students online? @Stumpteacher Josh Stumpenhorst joins us to share some cool videos and dive into the Facebook/teacher/student debate. Should we work harder at keeping our professional and personal online personas separate? Do we need strategies for teachers to avoid making stupid mistakes? Or do we just avoid students online at all costs? Let’s discuss…

Google+ Building (or Re-Building) your PLN

Twitter just became 5 years old and many of us can remember the first time: we heard of twitter… the first time we experienced powerful collaboration on twitter… some of us can even remember our first tweet (not me, though I can imagine it was something like: “I just don’t understand this…” So, for many it feels like a shock when after 5 years, thousands of tweets, hours of growing and grooming our personal learning network we look at Google+ […]

At conferences, taking teachers to the session about the Personal Learning Network is usually fun. They learn about all the social networking tools that will help them. They end up signing up for Twitter- then – never use it again. I think Twitter is really one of the best resources for getting ahead in Ed, however, it’s not for everybody. Even one of […]
