Jason Heimerdinger
Production Management for Social Media Teams
Managing a social media presence for a busy institution like McNary high was seen as a necessary element of our school’s communication plan. Managing it collaboratively with a group of student producers was another challenge in and of itself. Using a shared Google Doc to organize important content and then a shared Google Sheet to facilitate the Production Management we have developed a system that allows for strong team collaboration and record keeping that leads to an efficient scheduling for the delivery of our content.

Limiting Student Internet Access on Chromebooks: Teacher Controlled Apps for Education and Cyber Management
Would you like a way to use internet in your classroom without having the entirety of the internet present? I sure would. In my research I discovered a tool that may help me do just that. The applications are open ended, so come and tell me what you think! I’ve just gotten started and need peer feedback to develop this idea into something that could become widely available to (and more user-friendly for) “less techie” teachers who want to have a tool for cyber management in the classroom.
