Major Project

I have gone back and forth on what to do for my major project. I really want to make a meaningful impact on my teaching practices. I want to be able to apply the skills I acquire from this project to my daily classroom teaching. I hope to be able to have a new lens into the social media world and what my students or students in my school may be using.

I am wanting to do option number two so I can be more aware of what is out there on social media and what educational apps are available. I have heard lots recently about the TikTok app and the dangers that have arose. I know this is a popular app for younger students. I teach grade 2 and 3 students and think it would be great to dive into what they are doing on social media and how they use it.

I would also like to investigate three educational apps. I have not heard of Aurasma, ShowMe, or Touchcast that were suggested so I will try those out and hopefully be able to apply it to my classroom.

I am excited to get started exploring these four apps and being more aware of what is accessible to students and teachers.

Stay tuned for updates on my journey! 🙂

  1. Hi Christina, I am looking forward to getting to know you over the course of the semester. I also struggled with choosing a project to pursue. I am also looking into TikTok. It will be interesting to hear if you think it can be applied to education. Beware it does become a large time suck! I have used Aurasma in the past but I think it is now called HP reveal. I am excited to see what you have to share!
