Your Thoughts on the Social Media Presentation?

Nationally recognized internet and social media expert, Katie Greer, recently spoke to DS students about the importance of managing their use of technology and online presence, as well as the potential dangers and responsibilities that these new technologies and platforms give them. 

What did you learn about and/or find interesting from Ms. Greer's presentation? Please leave your response in the comments section below. Please note that I moderate all of  the comments directed to my blog so I will have to "release" them before they are displayed.

Hmmm, which blog posts and comments have I already notified Mrs. A about????

If you're not sure if you've already notified me that you've posted a new blog post, you can take a look here:

Yikes! I'm writing for a global audience!


Students will complete the course units in the order that they are listed under
the section named, "Course Units." Beginning with the Unit on Blogging, students will write and publish a blog post at the end of each unit (at a minimum).


Writing for a blog is a bit different than writing for a printed newspaper or a school essay. Students will be writing for a global audience so particular attention should be made to be sure that the content is relevant and interesting. Spelling and grammar are also both very important!  Check out these guidelines on how to write interesting blog post titles and content.

I suggest that you develop/write your posts in a Google Doc and then paste into Blogger. If you decide to write directly into Blogger, be sure to save your work often.



Have fun blogging!

Welcome to Social Media Literacy class!

This course will focus on guiding students as they "build their personal brand" (Digital Footprint) on social media. It will also help them to develop skills and awareness as they search for useful (and credible) information from social media resources and, just as importantly, how to contribute meaningful content.

All course material is accessible from this blog - see Course Units and Course Resources located to the right. Please see the About This Course page for more information on this course.

Course Units:
Each unit is comprised of activities that students must complete before moving on to the next unit. Most activities fall into one (or more) of the following categories:
