Twitter Tuesday – October 18th

Next year the new Technology Application TEKS go into effect.  In reading through them I have begun to pick out areas I think my campus needs help in getting ready for the new TEKS.   One of these strands is:

Communication and collaboration. The student collaborates and communicates both locally and globally to reinforce and promote learning. The student is expected to:

6th grade 7th Grade 8th Grade

(A) participate in personal learning networks to collaborate with peers, experts, or others using digital tools such as blogs, wikis, audio/video communication, or other emerging technologies;

(A) create personal learning networks to collaborate and publish with peers, experts, or others using digital tools such as blogs, wikis, audio/video communication, or other emerging technologies; (A) create and manage personal learning networks to collaborate and publish with peers, experts, or others using digital tools such as blogs, wikis, audio/video communication, or other emerging technologies;
