via erased4838853

@bkuhl2you right! :-) It’s a good term - and I like the analogy from music / remixing

via erased4838853 in reply to bkuhl2you

A7 Be prepared for “teachable moments” relating to digital citizenship - but recognize those are “talks” we want/need 2have w Ss!

via erased4838853

via erased4838853 in reply to bkuhl2you

@sue_fitz are those Ss google sites public or private? Can you share an index link to them?

via erased4838853 in reply to sue_fitz

@rwootenits I agree, I find the iPad to be a fantastic tool for audio & video recording, then fast sharing!

via erased4838853 in reply to rwootenits

rwootenits A6 One of the things about iPad is that it provides multiple means of expression and representation

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:38 PM, Feb 9th, 2014 via Twitter Web Client)

@fab5thgrade that is a gr8 idea - reminds me of an app @shannonmmiller loves to use w/ students for mystery locations!

via erased4838853 in reply to cdolat

via erased4838853 in reply to iPadEFLTeacher

@sue_fitz @tanyapsnook Do students need to have their own email accounts to have individual @LiveBinders accounts?

via erased4838853 in reply to sue_fitz

via erased4838853

Q4 What iPad apps are most useful to support student digital writing?

via erased4838853 in reply to wfryer

@rwootenits Have you seen rubrics misused / not used appropriately when it comes to student interactive digital writing?

via erased4838853 in reply to wfryer

@rwootenits yes absolutely, I think rubrics can be used very constructively in digital writing

via erased4838853 in reply to rwootenits

@DavidGraham09 I don’t think we should seek inappropriate digital writing per se, but discussions around that topic can be gr8

via erased4838853

@DavidGraham09 well, I think appropriate / inappropriate are terms we need to discuss & define together w our Ss…

@janhodgelibrary How have you seen Ts share their modeling of digital writing with Ss?

via erased4838853 in reply to janhodgelibrary

A3 Highlighting examples of good comments that include specific feedback, questions for the original author, etc can help Ss

via erased4838853

GarrettRachelE : Ss learn from non examples. Show some appropriate (but rude) responses and go from there

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 8:18 PM, Feb 9th, 2014 via Twitter Web Client)

PaulSolarz A2 - Quad Blogging is an exciting idea. Four classrooms, each one taking turns commenting on the others’ blogs.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 8:13 PM, Feb 9th, 2014 via Twitter Web Client)

@tanyapsnook @Cowpernicus So do you all know of school boards who prohibit interactive, public online digital writing now?

via erased4838853 in reply to tanyapsnook

A2 Teachers can tweet links to specific student blog posts using the hashtag to invite more feedback

via erased4838853

@Cowpernicus yes :-( That continues on both sides of our border. It can be challenging to show benefits of public sharing

via erased4838853 in reply to Cowpernicus

@sblwilliams yes definitely! Various forms of social media can support writing & stories

via erased4838853

via erased4838853 in reply to bkuhl2you

Q2 How can teachers help students build an authentic audience writing online in shared spaces?

via erased4838853

A1 Classroom “interactive digital writing” should be shared publicly so parents & other Ss in other places can comment

via erased4838853

valibrarian A1 interactive digital writing (as all good writing) is a process & should include reflection, revision for Ss Ts

via erased4838853 in reply to richroberts76

@bkuhl2you A1 by “interactive digital writing” I mean writing that takes place online, & allows different people to reply/respond

via erased4838853 in reply to bkuhl2you
