Classroom Social Media (Day 3 of 25 Days of School Christmas Season)

Posted: November 14, 2014 in Uncategorized

This school year I won an iPad Mini at our beginning of school year technology conference. I decided to make this iPad my class mascot Gus the Emporia State Gorilla’s iPad. It would be used by students and have them share what is going on throughout their school day.

Gus has a Twitter account and an Instagram account.

Students are given Gus’s iPad to carry around throughout the day. At the beginning of the day I have the student read over the agreement for the use of the iPad to remind them about why they were given the iPad for the day.

After they read and sign, then they are given the iPad Mini to carry around for the school day. This allows students to share what they are doing in their classes. I really enjoy seeing what is going on from the view of the students. I’m not sure how may parents see these, but students enjoy being the person to be sharing.

I want to thank the wonderful staff at Longfellow Middle School who allow students to take pictures and to share what is going on. We should be helping teach students how to share appropriately on social media, and what better way then to allow them to share with a classroom account.

Below are some of the things that have been shared this school year.
