News has just arrived that Snapchat has been leaked. Renata Rowe’s post (below) is timely and reminds us as teachers to have discussions about social networking sites. Any site that claims that users are safe is misleading and sites like snapchat that claim that the images disappear are similarly misleading. Most devices have the capacity to take screenshots meaning that any image online can be simply recorded. Once that is done, it can be reposted therefore rendering the image visible to many eyes again. The false sense of security that users have with these sites needs to be exposed.
-Present themes and observations using media elements captured in cell maps. -Set interactive tasks or games for students that require them to explain ideas through media or patterns. -Use the screen-casting feature to observe how students are progressing with their tasks. -Students can present their resulting cell maps using the flow video export feature.
Cell Storming can be a useful tool for e-Learning or distance learning scenarios, where teachers and students are separated.
Louise Robinson-Lay‘s insight:
This is a digital version of one of my favourite thinking tools, the hexagons from the SOLO thinking model. A pro version of the app allows you to export the cells.
