Ok I am on a roll today!
The class blog is up and running and the kids LOVE it! I have been getting emails tonight asking to approve blog post for publishing! I love that they are at home working on this. Some of the entries tonight have blown me away which makes me excited to use this blog! I even had one student create a blog post last night about what she is learning in all of her subjects and a student add to her list through the comments!
Now on to my reason for this post…does anyone use twitter in the classroom? I emailed my superintendent today about what parental permission I would need if any and she posed the following questions to me:
Can you give me more information regarding protection of privacy, can this be handled intranet wise so it is not in the cloud or……?
To these questions I do not have an answer just yet…we do not currently have a policy around this in our school division so I was wondering if you could share what is happening in your school divisions. Do you know teachers that are using twitter in their classroom? Are you using it? What has been put in place regarding privacy etc?
Here is an interesting article I found on Sean’s blog tonight – Speaking up In Class, Silently Using Social Media from the New York Times. I noticed it talked about Google Moderator when concerned about privacy issues. I am going to look into that as well. If anyone has any experience with Google Moderator I would love to hear about it!
Thanks for the feedback.
