Social media sharing for middle school students provides opportunities to use current, relevant tools for student learning. The articles read for the class highlight a number of ways that several tools can be used, and in our discussion board postings we were able to share the pros and cons of media sharing in general, and specific ways we are (or are not) using media sharing. The reasons against using media sharing centered on student privacy and behavior online. After reading the articles, considering the discussion board posts, and asking others what media sharing tools they used, I decided to create a fan page on Facebook to post student work. I have already posted products that two of my students created in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. I also posted an animation that one student created in which she highlights why Miller is such an exceptional school. The link to the Facebook Fan Page is: https://www.facebook.com/MillerTeacherLibrarian Enjoy!
