FERPA statement

Personal FERPA statement

I, KAITLIN CRAIG, understand and accept that some of my academic work for the fall 2012 semester will be published on the open web.

I also disclose that the work I will be putting up online is done as a part of the EDUC439/639 class at the University of Delaware. The home page of this open class is located at http://openteaching.ud-css.net/.

Unless content put up can potentially damage my online reputation, I also pledge to leave it online until at least December 21, 2012, the end of the fall semester.

Under those terms, I waive parts of my FERPA-granted rights for the purpose of exploring social media and web 2.0, excluding private conversations with colleagues and course grades.

Expectations for this course:

I teach middle school and I would love to gather tools to help me reach the “digital native” throughout this course. I would love to provide various tools to the students to help them study, learn and engage in science. Being a science teacher, I feel that I will be able to learn about many tools that a  science class can benefit from. I also want to learn about opportunities for a teacher to grow professionally through social networking. I am sure the possibilities are endless of how to incorporate social networking into the classroom. I just want to learn about all of the options available, for cost but mostly I am interested in the free programs. I would love to find out if a system like blackboard, sakai, or canvas are available for teachers to use in their own classroom! I expect to be learning alot, as the first two weeks, I am already introduced to new sites!


I just created my “about me” site!
