Digital Doors was created as a place for me to blog and share resources that I think would be helpful for teachers integrating technology in meaningful ways in their classroom. My goal would be to write a blog post a week, but with my busy schedule, that doesn't happen. I write when I can and rely on nifty tools to help me share what I am finding when I don't have time to write.

9-4-15 Fresh Start and New Ways to Learn

We are off to a great start in the Mount Vernon School District.  Students are excited, and teachers are ready and set for a super year.  That is one thing I love about teaching.  Every year, we get to start fresh.  We've reflect on what worked, we challenge ourselves to try new things and we dive in to another year of learning.  As you can see in the Doc below, we've created lots of ways for you to stay in the know about all things Digital Literacy in the district.  I certainly don't expect you to frequent all of these avenues, but hopefully, you will pick an avenue that fits into your style and be able to keep up to date and perhaps even share cool things that are happening in your classroom with others.


To get us rolling, I am going to offer a series of challenges each week.  Those who participate, will be entered into a drawing for a small, but exciting prize.

This week's challenge is to Like our Facebook Page.  Now if you have chosen not to be on Facebook, I will tell you that the chance of the small, but exciting prize will not be worth your effort.  Just wait until the next week and maybe you will find something more up your alley.  But, if you are someone who regularly checks Facebook, "liking" our page might prove to be the best way for you to receive tips and useful tools, Instagram photos from around the district and links to blogs written by other teachers in our district.

Just click this link and hit like and you are connected!

Check out Mount Vernon Digital on Instagram.  My goal is as I am moving throughout the district to snap some of the cool and interesting things I see happening in teaching and digital literacy throughout the district.
If you are on Instagram, you can join in the fun by snapping photos and videos that show the spirit of learning in our district share with the hashtag #mvsddigital,  (Please be mindful when publishing photos of students that they have not opted out of being published.  Don’t caption pictures or videos with student names.  Just share what is happening. )
