RULER + The Handmaid’s Tale. And so begins the real work of what it means when we say “text to self.” Starting with day 1: Recognize (in ourselves).

Like I told my high school and college students on the first day of class and have modeled for the last three weeks: You write, I write. Otherwise, if not, how can I hold any legitimacy as someone who “teaches” writing? 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

A6: I would like to pair the development of a wiki or a database site with podcasting / gaming so students can participate in digital galleries and digital stations of each others’ work.

A5: Equity is not of much concern at my district; however, some of these technologies are quite time consuming as students find new learning curves. Finding appropriate classroom time to support students playing with technologies is essential for success.

A4: I think the language of coding is definitely on the rise (especially as STEAM gains momentum). I am working through coding books and writing programmable games. I would like to see students engage in creating narratives for text based adventure games.

Currently, our district only lets us post students' podcasts on our own host site (CANVAS). What's nice is other students can see it and share. That said, I'm hoping we can find ways to explore more authentic audiences.

I love Flipgrid. There are just so many different applications!

A3: My favorite tech tool is definitely podcasting (I love Adobe Audition, the software students can use for creating podcasting). Podcasting continues to challenge students as they learn the importance of interview skills, intros, outros and segmenting work.

Definitely blogging. But it was often the path of least resistance. I'm hoping to have students practice multiple forms before dedicating to their chosen idea (and why not integrate blogging with podcasting, streaming, etc).

I'm trying to make Maker's Space work in my high school classroom, and let me say, it's not as easy or as fluid as I want it to be. I just have to keep trying!

I can't wait to do some research on this. Quite fascinating!

A2: Our seniors often engage in PBL projects that go beyond traditional literacy (podcasting, blogging, streaming). Often times, students are presented choices in what literacies they would like to respond with as opposed to the traditional literary analysis essay

A1: Rec #2 While I appreciate the technology that appears, what we need rarely comes to fruition. Thankfully my district utilizes grants. I need to commit to pilot technology & invite admin to see these technologies (podcasting equipment & noise-canceling) in action
