In honor of Earth Day, we’re sharing an activity from our Science Education colleagues here at KQED. Pass this along to your teacher friends, and encourage them to participate in this activity for students to explore current issues using social media.
Check out the original activity post over at Do Now for more information.
Do Now is a weekly activity for students to engage and respond to current issues using social media tools like Twitter. KQED aims to introduce 21st Century skills and add value to learning through the integration of relevant local content and new media tools and technologies. Do Now gives students a chance to practice civic engagement and digital citizenship skills while they explore ways to connect topics in their classes to the present day.
