Tool #6: Using Web Tools to Promote Discussion in and out of the Classroom

For your Tool #6 Post:

  1. Choose at least two of the tools from the above list. Create an account for each (if required) .
  1. Use each of the tools you choose to create a sample of how you would use it in your classroom.
I will use twitter to communicate short bursts of information related to practice times, bus departure tiimes, etc. This will reduce the confusion that existed this year supported by the numerous text messages I received the day prior asking. I will also use facebook to communicate team information.

  1. Embed the sample (preferred) or link to the URL.
  2. Share your thoughts on how you see the tools being integrated into your classroom. How do you see them encouraging participation?
Regardless of the many team meetings, newsletters, emails to parents, and white board messaging, the student-athletes seemed to never quite know practice time starts and bus departures. This created frustration on both sides which I feel could be reduced with better use of technology.
