WOW, what a long snow break! I am not sure whether the UGA campus will be open tomorrow or not, but I decided to have a project day at home tomorrow (Feb 14, Friday). Please answer this survey to let me know you are aware of tomorrow’s schedule.
Please work on your social media strategy plan and let me know if you have any question. In particular, I hope you can complete the Step One “Reading About Social Media”, and we can talk about some of those resources on Monday.
Step One: Reading About Social Media
It’s impossible to find the “perfect” article for you to read about social media. The problem is – the “perfect” article depends on what you’re interested in. There’s so much good stuff out there – I want you to find your own article. Here’s what you’re going to do:
- Do Google search for any articles/videos/resources about social media to get some idea about what/how social media tools are used in your target grade level and/or subject area to support communication and collaboration. Find 1 article, video, or resource.
- Tweet the example/resource to #P2_SocialMedia with information of “learner grade level, subject area, learning activity, social media tool, and link”. For example, “Undergraduates, N/A, Discussion, Twitter, http://youtu.be/t1szz0KRzh0 “
- Add a new page called “Social Media Strategy Plan” on your portfolio
- Link to the article you found, and write 2 paragraphs about what this article means to you, how it informs your understanding of social media, and what is in the article that you will use in your profession.
And don’t worry about the deadline of this project. I definitely need to push the deadlineby next Friday (Feb 21). Of course, I am going to ask your opinion next Monday.
Well, still cold. Stay warm and enjoy this weather like him in this video! (Oh, have you ever seen a soap bubble is freezing? Watch this video from 1:15!) Oh, and, Happy Valentine’s Day!!
