Purpose & Objectives
Sharing is a moral imperative for educators. Dean Shareski made this point clearly in his 2010 pre-conference keynote for the K-12 Online Conference. In this session, we’ll explore ways educators are using digital platforms to share ideas, network, collaborate, and communicate more with students, parents, and peers. If you can send an email attachment, you can share rich media as well as text and hyperlinks with Posterous. If you do not already have an online classroom learning hub, it’s time to create one. We’ll look at examples of sites classroom teachers are using now to provide rich windows into the learning of their students. We need more “digitally powered” show and tell. Come learn how.
I will guide participants in a hands-on format, learning with FREE tools how to:
– share rich media online (text, links, audio, photos and videos) using EMAIL (Posterous)
– share audio recordings online using a phone and a free phonecasting service (iPadio)
– share geo-mapped voice recordings online (AudioBoo)
– create and share short, narrated videos using an iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone (StoryRobe)
In addition we will view examples of exemplary websites where learners are sharing rich media which reflects their understanding, mastery, and skills.
I’ve started a website of resources to support this presentation, and plan to have a book focused on this topic finished for the conference as well. Check it out on TalkWithMedia.com.
