For the latter we turned to two teachers who have competing views about allowing social media in their classrooms." Read the full article here.

This summer I was in a presentation called the Six Word Story from a Missouri educator named Don Goble. Not knowing anything about him or what to expect – just simply intrigued by the presentation title – I decided to check it out. Turns out it was an extremely valuable presentation with content that could be applied in a variety of interdisciplinary ways, using media arts and storytelling. Better yet, I was able to connect with Don and bring the expertise of an accomplished film and media arts teacher as well as Apple Distinguished Educator to our professional learning network.
