    Podcast474: Brainstorming "Fact or Fiction? Apollo Moon Landings" Workshop and Lesson

    Our conversations about media literacy, conspiracies, culture wars, and the Apollo Moon landings continue! The current generation of youth has been exposed to more conspiracy theories about the Apollo Moon landings and many other topics than any previous generation. What are we going to do about this as educators and parents? This is a serious media literacy challenge, and the project connected to this audio recording provides some answers to this question. This podcast is a recording of a livestreamed conversation between Brian Turnbaugh (@wegotwits) and Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) on July 6, 2020, discussing a proposed workshop at the virtual version of the Summer Institute on Digital Literacy (digiuri.com) coming to a screen near you July 19-24, 2020. This is the part two of these shared conversations. Please refer to the shownotes of our podcast on speedofcreativity.org for links to part 1 of this conversation, our Google Doc with our developing resources, and more. The proposed title of this workshop and lesson is now something like, "Fact or Fiction? Apollo Moon Landings," although this final title is still up for grabs. Wes has been invited to share a keynote based on these ideas at the upcoming virtual "Mountain Moot" July 16, 2020. (Register FREE to attend on mountainmoot.com) This project continues to be a "work in progress" and is being refined / expanded. We welcome your feedback. All project resources are available on medialiteracy.wesfryer.com/concw. Please use the hashtag #ConCW to share related resources! Thanks to our livestream viewers who shared great ideas and asked good questions in our StreamYard.com powered chat room during this broadcast.

    Podcast472: Remote Learning in Oklahoma #OklaEd

    This podcast is a recording of a webinar panel discussion by Oklahoma educators Telannia Norfar, Delilah Rodriguez, Rhonda Schroeder and Wesley Fryer on Saturday, April 25, 2020. Our topic of conversation was "Remote Learning in Oklahoma," as we are now about a month into "learning at home" because of the neo-coronavirus / COVID-19 global pandemic. The questions we discussed included, What is your current role and situation with 'remote learning' in Oklahoma? What is your technology situation like in terms of student devices, teacher devices, and utilized platforms? What are discovering that should be changed about school as a result of this situation? What are some success stories about remote learning at your school / for you? How do you think we can help teachers and schools prepare for ongoing remote learning in the event we don't return face-to-face to school in August, or we do but have to go back to remote learning in the fall? Check out the shownotes for links to Twitter IDs for each of our panelists, as well as other referenced resources and links from the conversation.

    Podcast471: Let’s Talk About Social Identity and FOMO

    This podcast is a recording of a digital citizenship presentation for high school students shared by Dr. Wesley Fryer at Casady School in Oklahoma City on February 27, 2020. The goal of this talk was to encourage students to think more deeply and critically about their own identities, how those identities are shaped, and specifically how much power and influence we give other people and social media specifically when it comes to our perceptions of who we are and who we want to be. The Common Sense Media video, "Teen Voices: Who Are You on Social Media?" was shared during this presentation, and the audio from that video is included in this podcast. Please check the podcast shownotes for the link to the original video, as well as other wonderful resources from Common Sense on Digital Citizenship including a robust (and free) curriculum on digital citizenship for teachers and students differentiated by grade level. Also check out more resources we've shared on our school's digital citizenship website, DigCit.us.

    Podcast470: Sharing and Learning About the 2020 U.S. Census - Statistics in Schools

    Welcome to Episode 470 of the Moving at the Speed of Creativity podcast from February 18, 2020, a show by Dr. Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) focusing on digital creativity, media literacy, digital literacy, digital citizenship, instructional technology integration and engaged learning both inside and outside the classroom. This episode features a special interview with the U.S. Census "Statistics in Schools" Manager Victoria Glazer and Teacher Ambassador Emily McMillen, discussing the 2020 Census in the United States and the variety of FREE resources provided for PK-12 teachers to use with students. Disbursement of millions of dollars for our communities from the U.S. Federal Government depends on the Census! All of us as teachers and members of our communities can help both educate students and families about the importance of participating in the census, but also provide real-world, multi-disciplinary learning opportunities using existing census data via the resources shared on the "Statistics in Schools" website. Visit census.gov/schools for more information, and also refer to the podcast shownotes for more direct links.
