The following is a blog for my online EOTC class.
I am always looking to improve my teaching and trying new things. I have shared a few of the lessons I have learned here and here. I am posting these for fellow media teachers. I share them via my blog, Google + and Twitter.
I believe in teaching my students to follow copyright laws. I show my student examples of what can happen if copyright laws are not followed. When you are teaching a class on media production it is good start by doing everything correction.
I also show my student the downside of sharing everything with the public. We regular discuss current news events relating to media.
I participate in several online discussions as part of my pln. I started this in the spring and it has helped me to grow as a teacher. It is good to hear differing opinions about topics. The two twitter chats I participated the most were #bfc530 and #whatisschool. I wrote a blog about it here
I also use twitter as a way to communicate with my students. I have recently left this account for my replacement. This was a good way to communicate important school messages in way that my students would see them.
I learned the most from the modules relating to digital health. I will be using them with my student at my school next year.
