Journalism Class and Social Media

I wanted to take the opportunity to showcase how twitter can be used a part of a Journalism class along with a class blog.  Although Nashoba News has been using the twitter handler @chieftain_chat I thought it was import to review how journalism students can use twitter.

The new school year and Multimedia

This year I will be working with a member of my department on a Multimedia Course.  We plan to create Student Portfolio's in order for students to share their work with the family and relatives.

At the current time our district does not allow teacher or students to share document or presentations off the school network.  However, we can share a google site.

We plan to give students the option to share the link with their parents and will showcase their work at parent conferences and open house.

We plan to proceed cautiously about sharing student information off the domain, however students can share directly with parents.
