This morning, I was in a Google Hangout On Air with Jenn Scheffer and her student Mira discussing digital citizenship and my social media education mission. I have been in contact with Jenn for a few months now and have participated in a few of her Twitter chats for #digcit. She is such an inspiration for students to continue to push for more freedom in the education system in regard to social media and exemplifies how educators should emphasize and encourage social media use–in the correct way! If you don’t already, I highly suggest following her at @jlscheffer on Twitter! You can also follow her student host of today’s episode, Mira, at @Mira_On_The_Wall!
Here is a little preview of how the interview progressed, but–of course–you have to follow the link posted below to know exactly how our conversation integrated the topics of emoticons, cyberbullying, and even spring break pictures!
Even if you couldn’t view the episode live, you can still check it out on Youtube by following this link. Additionally, Jenn has provided a snippet about my mission and references this blog, which is always appreciated! We had so much fun on the show today and I cannot wait to facilitate more dialogue between Burlington High School students and myself! Thanks for an inspiring morning, Jenn!
