WTFT week 1: The plan (and iBooks Author)
But first a quick change from the original idea. I decided about a week ago that I want to incorporate all of the work/projects/learning videos and tools the students do in my Introduction to Journalism class into an end-of-term iBook. When asked what exactly am I putting in there, I only know a few certain things:
1) Use student work for examples
2) Use instructional tools I may already use (videos and lessons)
3) Let the students create the content with guidance
Other than that, it's pretty much fair game. So here are the sites I currently plan on introducing and using along w/ the class each week (we are in trimesters, so a 12 week course)
1) iBooks Author
6) Twitter Chats (hashtags)
8) - 12) are still TBD * if you have thoughts or ideas for things to try, I'm all ears! Just leave a comment below!
I do a lot of things. The best thing I do is fathering (I think). I'm the ol' "Jack of all trades, Master of none." I teach aspiring journalists. I run. I play guitar(s). I also host a running podcast. Oh, and I dabble in drawing. And I dabble in authoring... children's books no less. I just dabble. Sometimes I ramble.
