Collaborate Globally
  • "Collaborative projects really make for an excellent education experience not only because students bounce ideas off each other and improve each other's writing skills, but also because the process itself teaches them how to work well with others - a valuable skill for everyone." - Richard Ellwood, Technology Coordinator and Digital Arts Teacher, Columbia Secondary School

One of my principals is toying with the idea of using social networking tools to improve student attendance. What are you thoughts on this? More specifically, how would you use social networking tools to improve student attendance?

Answers from my Tweeps...

cyndyw2cyndy woods-wilson - draw 3-5 names daily to post on the page, must be present to win. Keep FB page as read only, but kids must join to read

cyndyw2cyndy woods-wilson - A school homepage where the kids follow, get extra credit for reading @ home +

answering question from it next day in class.

bigjakelittle Jake Little - I like idea of FB as an extension of class, but how will that incrs. attendc? Need more engaging classes, support @ home.

BrightTeacher Amy Bright

Maybe use a team of students (social media team) in charge of FB page. Rotate kids into the team.

MZimmer557 Michael Zimmer

maybe create a page dedicated to school attendance and share contest information or other programs?
