Tonight on TTT#500 we launch a series of episodes over the next few weeks focused on the new school year here in North America. +Chris Sloan
has started already and +Joe Dillon
starts Monday. Maybe your students are coming soon. Or maybe, like in the Northeast, you are just starting vacation! Still, it's time to think about the coming academic year and how to connect our students.
Tonight, and over the next few episodes of Teachers Teaching Teachers at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt
, we'll be talking about:
Letters to the Next President is launching as I write -- or at least soon! Some of us have been building curriculum, collecting ideas, and testing the new site. Let's catch up on some of this work with KQED and the National Writing Project tonight. http://letters2president.org
Also how does Do Now http://ww2.kqed.org/education/about-do-now/
and the the many other rich pieces of curriculum at KQED get integrated into our work with students this fall?
-Getting started with the new Youth Voices http://youthvoices.live So many new features: Which will we use? What's missing? Thanks to +Kim Jaxon and her colleagues and students at California State University, Chico, the new Youth Voices has been tested and is ready. More importantly: it has been seeded with amazing Letters to the Next President by over 200 of their students who will continue using the site this fall. --NowComment http://nowcomment.com +Dan Doernberg will be joining us next week, August 17 to introduce new features that allow students to annotate images and video. I've been testing a beta version of this with Dan, and can't wait for it to be released! -hypothes.is
is everwhere! It's built into every page (except the homepage) of the new http://youthvoices.live
. I've been exploring how student might annotate each others' posts as a step toward writing a more coherent response at the end. See: http://www.youthvoices.live/2016/08/03/product-of-our-environment/
There are many oportunies to use hypothes.is
as part of Letters to the Next President https://hypothes.is/letters-to-the-next-president/
Let's talk about having our student find each other in the margins this fall!
-Youth Voices LIVE! Let's get times when young people can use Hangouts to learn together. Check these out from the summer if you need inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLY9e9zEmLwtOBic7TIdFqkK6gtFtISJvU&v=JwL6QYIJp8Y There's more, so stay tuned -
