This week's recording is for section 62, the 9 - 10:50 am class. This is the overview of our class today:
Hyperlinked writing is the most powerful form of writing, and forms a cornerstone of literacy our hyper-connected information and communications landscape.

We will discuss the importance of building and maintaining a professional digital footprint, and explore the free K-12 Online Conference. (Resources on

  1. I totally get your time frustration, I feel the same way every week in my class!! I like your Facebook idea. I have 5 sections of my class with 30 students in each, so Facebook might actually be a great tool. Thanks for the idea, gonna give it a try with my class and K-State.
