As part of my presentation I included some videos and links which I have provide below for your convenience.
Weebly – A simple drag and drop website development page. No longer do you need code to build a great and easy to use website.
Remind – Formally Remind 101, this resource is great for sending out communications to parents, students, and groups that you work with. Remind acts as a go between so you can text your target group without having to give out your phone number. It also allows you to schedule messages to be sent our automatically at pre-determined times.
WordPress.com – This website platform is not as intuitive, but if you are looking for a long term investment and a cheap option for owning your own URL domain name then this might be a good option for you. This website uses the wordpress.com platform. Warning, this is not the same at WordPress.org.
Twitter – This social media platform is one of the best resources for professional growth as a growing number of educators are present on the platform.
Facebook – This social media platform is great if you are trying to reach a target age group 18-45 (as of 2014). Every 1 in 8 people have some sort of active presence on Facebook.
