2:40-5:00 in the Coyote Room
Today we will come in and get started with housekeeping type things
First order of business is Schoology:
Schoology will be used to post finished projects for sharing. We will sign up/sign in for Schoology and use the code:
This is the code for our group. You can ask questions, make comments, and post all your work. This will be a resource to come back to while you are at Plug & Play, and also to review before the school year starts.
A quick side tour about how to save your passwords using Google Drive. I like to use both Drive, and an old-fashioned notebook.
Introduction to Haiku Deck:
I have now showed you one of my go to decks that describe my teaching philosophy. One of the things I love about Haiku Deck is there are many ways to share your products, and they can transform across subject and grade level. It is also a web based product AND an app. This means you have access to it, no matter what device you are on.
BUT here is a public service announcement:
Moral to the video: Please use Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. when possible.
Assignment: Create a Haiku Deck and post it to Schoology. (You can bend the rules by adding extra slides or ideas)
Slides to include at least:
Your Hero, Your Favorite Book, Your Favorite Celebrity/Athlete, Your Favorite Food, Your Goal for Camp Plug & Play
When finished post to Schoology. Don't be afraid to ask the people around you for help.
Twitter for educators:
One of my favorite resources to share is Twitter. We would love for you to set up a Twitter account to connect and share with other educators. I have some screenshots below that will help guide you through the process. There is also a great Prezi from my friend, Jeff Herb, who runs the site and podcast, Instructional Tech Talk.
There are 5 pictures to help get you started in this gallery.
Here is the full Prezi presentation that I took the images from. Very relevant information from Jeff.
We will both be happy to help you set up a Twitter profile, during the week.
Writing day will be tomorrow!
