Project Idea

Megan Rice and I are planning to create a science and social studies discussion board for HMS.  We have tried several programs (wikispaces, google groups, blogger, twitter and pinterest).  After looking at all of them, I think we have decided to use wikispaces as it offers the flexibility that we are looking for.  We intend to use this discussion board with faculty and students (grades 5-8) to post questions about content, current events and resources.  We are also hoping to direct students (and staff) to follow this discussion board using Feedly.  

A goal is to encourage staff to join in the sharing of information on a regular basis, so that we can model appropriate and useful digital citizenship.

    This project idea is exciting. What a great way for regular cross grade/age collaboration. I also agree that the more we can explicitly model responsible digital citizenship the more likely our students are going to make reasonable choices. I can't wait to see how it goes. Feel free to ask me to be guinea pig for testing if that is helpful.
