3 Reasons Students should own your Classroom’s Twitter & Instagram Accounts
Kayla Delzer (@topdogteaching) puts forward a solid case for students taking ownership of class Twitter and Instagram accounts, citing the huge impact it can have for students in understanding the true meaning of web-presence in a safe environment. Delzer also has a social media bootcamp for parents, so they understand what is being asked of students, and of themselves in return.

When we think of Google, the first thing that comes to mind is probably searching and Google Docs in Drive. Google Keep is a great note taking app that is included as part of your Google suite of apps. You can easily make lists, add images and audio recordings. Because it is Google, you can easily make these collaborative and share them with others.

Green screen interview videos are a great marriage between technological skill and wizardry, and analogue research. Students worked in groups of 4 to research about different animals and chose a habitat image to form the background of their video. Check it out!
