The following resources are YouTube videos I found via twitter on how to utilize Plickers within the Physical Education Classroom! The gentlemen: Mike Gincolaand JoeyFiethwho have provided the information have created what they call “plagnets.” This is using Plickers QR codes and putting them in the form of a magnet where students can go to their Plicker (each student given a number) and assess themselves on whatever the objective or question of the day might be via their Physical Education teacher.
The Plagnet Assessment system also allows the Physical Education Teacher to post multiple choice questions via a handout or on the projector for students to answer with their assigned Plagnet number. My example I gave my students during our basketball unit ==>ClickHere.
The following are Plagnets provided by Joey Fieth and Jason Leach:
This is how I use the Plagnets (Joey Fieth version) within my classes. For instance, the question of the day was “How was your effort today?” This is a reflective question for my students. Once the class period is over for the day each student goes to the white board (finds their number) and assess themselves. Now, if I believe student(s) have assessed themselves incorrectly this is where I as their teacher have a great opportunity to offer feedback!!!! By using these I can also post a multiple choice question with these same Plagnets as mentioned above.

But here’s the thing: the history of social media actually goes back a lot further, and its roots can be found in blogging, Google, AOL, ICQ, the beginnings of the world wide web and, perhaps surprisingly, CompuServe.
This explain in good detail about content curation; what it is and why we need to use it. I looking at teaching this to my 8th grade students as we method for them to “filter” through content as they create an online digital magazine.

Managing Your Digital Footprint: Think Before You Post.
Digital footprint refers to the compilation of content on the Internet that can be associated with you and, thus, potentially available to anyone performing a search on you. The list of possible content visible online is endless (e.g., your family videos on YouTube, your comments on a news article or blog, vacation photos on Flickr, your posts on Facebook and Twitter). Please watch the video below, “Understanding Your Digital Footprint” and then write a blog post based on the questions below.
