My artefact for assignment one will be a video titled “Get connected with Google+”.
A video targeted at teachers who do not identify as Connected Educators, primarily for my own school but not specific to it. The video will firstly explore the value of becoming connected through quotes and data from teachers (crowd-sourced through Twitter, Google+ and Teachmeets) and theory from literature. The second part will demonstrate the use of Google+ as a non-threatening starting point for developing a PLN. Google+ has been selected as it is part of Google Apps For Education and offers flexibility in connecting and sharing within user-defined groups (circles) and specific interest communities.
Digital Tools and Spaces
I plan to use some or all of the following (and possibly others too…)
WeVideo/YouTube Creator Studio/iMovie
Using Google forms I have set up a survey which I have been sharing widely on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Google groups and to email communities. It can be filled out from here too – please do!
