For your classroom, you can create an account that you can send out reminders, sample problems, and your students can use it as a ways to stay connected to you and each other. However it is important to remember to teach our students to use technology wisely, and Learningfortomorrow discusses how what we put out on the internet is FOREVER, and can impact many without even trying.
REMEMBER though that all of the above needs to stay separate of our private accounts. Our students do not need to know about what we did or where we went this weekend, they don't need to know who we went on a date with or if you went to a party, that is private and the only way to keep it that way is to make is separate.
We also talked about Video Chat and the many uses for it. My tech teacher told us about times when he had his class learning from other students at a different school via video chat, and how his school is starting a program where the fifth grades will tutor students in a different part of the school via video chat. Also you can have students talk from different states or even different countries. Someone can travel and take your students with them via video chat. there are many ways to video chat, via Skype, Google plus hangouts, meeting.io, and many more. Most are free and easy to do!
