It is really cool how social media can be used to get positive messages out to the community about what is going on at our schools. Sites like Twitter and Facebook allow schools to do this without relying on traditional media outlets.
In this current educational world which is more focused on testing data each day it is fun to use video to remember the other things that most of us adults have fond memories of about our time in school - school spirit and community.
Welcome to Modern Educator
Here on this blog I hope to get a conversation going amongst students, teachers, administrators, and parents about who, what, when, why, and where we should teach technology skills for the 21st century. I am technology teacher at Truckee High School in Truckee, CA and currently teach classes like digital media, e-learning, applications, and keyboarding -- yes...still important! :) Please Join the Conversation!
