Major Learning Project – Option 2

Giphy.com

Well, after a very crappy start to the semester (and year), I am finally able to post about my major learning project. I have decided to delve into option #2 and learn more about both social apps and educational apps. I haven’t fully decided which apps I am going to research and learn how to use, but I think that I want to look into TikTok for sure. After talking with my students, they suggested looking into TikTok, Discord and Instagram. I already have an Instagram account, but haven’t actually done much research into the app. I have never used TikTok and Discord, but these social apps are used by my students on a daily basis and it would be good to know what they are all about. I also would really like to look into the impact that these social apps have the mental health of middle years students. For the educational apps I would like to look into ShowMe and SeeSaw. I am already signed up for SeeSaw, but use it strictly as a way to message parents. I haven’t used the app to share lessons, activities and projects. From what I quickly saw about ShowMe, it seems like it could be similar to SeeSaw. I am sorry that this post is so short, but there will be more details coming soon.
