Social Media Assessment Rubrics

From the Big Deal Media Newsletter, here are a few sample rubrics for those of you that are including social media activities in your curriculum.   The newsletters are free, I encourage you to signup - they are a great resource!

The University of Wisconsin-Stout (Wisconsin’s Polytechnic University) has organized a collection of free rubrics for assessing social media projects. The Wiki Rubric’s criteria are useful for assessing individual and group wiki contributions. Users of the Blog Rubric can assess individual blog entries, as well as comments on peers’ blogs. And the Twitter Rubric will help teachers assess student learning during social networking instructional assignments.

The following video outlines the steps that you can take to help you keep track of the events posted in your calendars. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like assistance setting up your notifications.

Twitter #12daystwitter Challenge for Educators

For those of you already using Twitter and for those of you that are curious to see what it’s all about, I encourage you to join the Twitter #12daystwitter challenge for educators. This is a great opportunity to grow your Personal Learning Network (PLN) - to learn from and collaborate with like-minded educators.

The challenge starts today. How many educators from @ds_schools will join the #12daystwitter challenge?

My (Twitter) PLN provides me with endless ideas and resources for my curriculum and my teaching.
If you’d like any help getting started, please let me know. Happy Tweeting, @LoriAlighieri
