Tech Integration can be Transformative!

Outline for Today:

  • share 2 stories about digital sharing
  • define “inside & outside sharing”
  • start with inside sharing
  • Benefits of outside sharing with interactive writing

Main Goal:

Provide you with new vocabulary as you talk about digital sharing & work with teachers

Inside & Outside Digital Sharing

Inside the classroom, the hallway, the school, the class/school community.

Inside the iPad Camera Roll, SeeSaw, Google Classroom, Edmodo, or another “password required” website.

Beyond the classroom/school walls, on the public web, shareable to social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest.

Outside on a classroom blog like KidBlog, on a hosted website like Google Sites, or a classroom YouTube channel, with “NO PASSWORD REQUIRED.”
