My Camp Examples: 

Assignment: Plug In Resources 

Video

 

The Edge Chronicles My students enjoy meeting authors by watching their videos... so fun and the books don't stay on the shelf for months afterwards.

Forum

 Summer Reading OK, so I created this Tal.ki for a try at using this plug in... let's see if I can get this to work!  So far I'm not getting this to look like the example, I definitely need more help getting this up and running. I like the formatting for our camp forums and would definitely use this with my students as a book discussion/author forum but I'm just not getting it work.... I'll keep at it. Ready, ready to chat.... please click the link and log in and talk to me!

Screencast

I like Linda's idea of using this plug in for tutorials (library catalog searching).  It would be great to use this for how to place a hold.

Avatars

 Much fun! 

Posters

  

This is my Title 1 practice Glog... the Library one is in the works.

Wordle

Wordle: Green Mt Readers

Green MT Library wordle ;^)

VoiceThread

Very interesting, I like the idea of creating a page for book reviews either by your own students or from various voice threads available... this is just my first attempt for my library wiki.

Animoto

 Knife of Never Letting Go Take 2

Book trailer for The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Created by Teen Librarian Robin Brenner. Brookline Public Library.

Not enough time to create my own, but I am impressed with the design... so much better than a slideshow!

Surveys & Polls

I'm familiar with Survey Monkey... but I liked this formatting better.  What a great tool for getting library feedback.  I can't wait to create one for my students/staff/parents for 2010-2011.

Chat

I was really excited about this easy to add plug in, but no one is on line when I am... so how does this work for a Library site?

Footnotes & Equations

I have used the footnotes before but not the equations.  When I have more time, I'll check out the equations for our math teachers.  I'm planning a wiki workshop in December for the staff.

Powerpoint Presentation

Summer Reading Movie: Originally the only to show this was by uploading on each computer, then came the student share folder, and now hopefully Teacher Tube will get us past the downloading into the embedding.... gotta love tech advancements. 

Twitter4Teachers

Added my name to the Librarian page..will this connect me with my twitter? 

Calameo

This was great.. to get this document... this humongous file... in a new format!

ToonDoo  What to Read?
  Very fun! 
   

 

Use Twitter to post assignments

Using Twitter is an easy way to post assignments and your students don't even have to have an account. If you are using TodaysMeet, simply create a new room and set the time frame to one year. Give out the URL of the room to your students and their parents. Now you have a simple way to add your assignments.

If you want to use Twitter, create a new Twitter account that will be used only for school business. Then, create a hashtag for each class and send this information to your students and their parents. To post an assignment, type a tweet and include the hashtag for the correct class. Students can view this comment stream by going to http://tweetchat.com/room/yourhashtag. You can even add documents to your tweets by using a service such as TwitDoc.

If you have any questions about this article or any other Twitter questions, post a reply on the Teacher Experience Exchange.
