This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and educational technology enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it (via social media w/ #edublogsclub or posting a link as a comment to that topic’s posting on the Edublogger site) to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt.
Prompt: Write a post that includes a “giveaway,” whether that is a lesson, a PDF, or something else.
Just make sure it is something you’ve created (preferably) or something you have the copyrights to share.
Some ideas to get you started:
- Write a post about the importance of sharing ideas to create better student outcomes for everyone.
- Discuss times when you felt you did not want to share your ideas and why “giving away” this one is important.
- Share a time someone used an idea without permission and why plagiarism in the real world matters.
- What value do ideas have and why does giving them credit matter?
I try to share everything I post on here so if it may help someone else, then they can use it. Recently, I have been creating activities using ThingLink’s VR/360° editor. They are Breakout Edu styled activities. The beginning of the month, I was contacted asking if there was a way to get a ‘teacher guide’ version of my planning docs.
Sure! In fact, let me add an item to my ThingLinks for others…
Now when an educator reaches out, I share a ‘view only’ version of the planning doc for educators that has the combinations as well as where the clue is to solve that lock.
