The Rising Decline Project on Bill Selak Talks: Part 1 of 30

In this first episode, I introduce the first of 15 songs from my old band Rising Decline’s album Socially Acceptable Disaster. I’ll publish two episodes at a time: one is me talking about the song and connecting it to educational technology, and the other podcast episode will be the song.

So listen to this episode, then head over and listen to the song.

Snapchat vs. Instagram Stories: Two Ways for Professional Learning and Epic Storytelling

Snapchat: a powerful tool for sharing your story.
Instagram Stories: a powerful tool for sharing your story.

Administrators are afraid to talk about Snapchat and Instagram Stories: it’s new, it’s unknown, and it can be scary. We will demystify this platform and show how it can be a way to authentically connect with internal and external community members.

We’ll discuss these questions:
How can my school authentically share its story?
How can I authentically share my educational story?
How might we better share our school’s vision for learning?
How can we use Snapchat to show non-educators what innovative education looks like?

Bonus: Tara Martin has an epic Snapchat infographic that walks you through the icons and what they do.
