WELCOME: I hope you will consider joining this wiki and contributing or just take a look around. The results from our session this Friday are amazing. I am so proud of all of you! Let's continue to build on this work.


Please think about trying a wiki...just review the HOW TO on the side bar and don't hesitate to ask if you need help. We would like to publish the wikis and blogs created on Friday on our website so please send me the link when you are ready to publish!

Welcome to the SOCSD Collaboration Wiki:

We will be using this WIKI district wide to support and enhance our work. More information regarding this initiative will be coming to you in the future.
Today is an exciting day! As a collective, collaborative, professional learning community, we will be working on enhancing instruction to meet the needs of the 21st century learner. We are all 21st century learners.

Our skill development related to existing technologies will be enhanced. Please apply this new learning to your work while keeping your eye on the essential components of 21st century learning.

Think about these 21st century outcomes as you enhance your work:

  • Critical thinking/problem solving skills
  • Collaborative/Leadership skills
  • Adaptability and ability to use a variety of tools
  • Initiative and Entrepreneurialism
  • Effective oral, written, and presentation skills
  • Ability to access, analyze and process information
  • Curiosity and imagination
  • Adapt and apply emerging technologies



To begin the session today please take a look at this 21st century learning example provided by Dorothy Taylor, School Library Media Specialist at SOMS.



[Note: when creating this video it was assigned tags. Tags are like subjects in a library catalog that allow you to locate items with like characteristics. One of the tags assigned was socsd. If you are tagging a creation it would be good to also assign it an socsd tag. Then, if we are looked for a video or any other type of tagged creation we can quickly find things created by our fellow socsd teammates.]



Thank you Dorothy. If you haven't visited Teacher Tube, you really should. There are some great videos out there that you can use in your instruction.
