This year, I am adding a classroom Twitter account, a mailing list for parents for Bravenet, and I am going to use my blog more frequently. I am editing my webpage so that can integrate it more easily with Angel LMS, the portal that the 1:1 schools are using.
I was thinking of creating a Facebook page for my class, but then that would mean my students would be able to see my profile and request to add me. I don’t want to have to create another “professional” profile on Facebook. Not that I post anything that is really bad – there is just a line there that I am not going to cross. I don’t want my friends and students mingling.
I’ve also been looking into diigo instead of Delicious, becuase it has really cool highlighting and sticky note features, but I don’t think we’ll be able to use it because first of all, we’d have to download a program onto the computers, and secondly, I think it would be too easy for the students to create a chatroom. (As an afterthought, I don’t like Diigo. It’s not counter-intuitive for me, and I’ve seen too much spam on Diigo.)
Whoops! Gotta go put the trash can out! Post more later!
