New Tech for My Year: video/screencast

This is another situation of starting is always better than not.  Thank you Seth Godin.

I’ve overthought this one and just about killed it.  But this year, I’m going to start.

Digital Citizenship (or just plain citizenship) needs to start in elementary school.  I’ve provided links, videos and other resources to our staff to build up our knowledge and practice around appropriate internet habits and care of devices/logins/etc.  It’s not enough.  The impact is one-and-done and we know how effective those methods are.

So I’m going to use our student leadership (GLT: Grant Leadership Team) to facilitate their creation of how-to’s, or public service announcement-style videos.  Less an a minute, focused on a particular practice, strategy or habit, done by and for kids.

Tool?  Wevideo to start with–GAFE friendly, easy to use and share.  Others you might recommend?

Here we go!
