Celebrate and Share!
We invite and encourage you to share what you are doing to welcome creativity into your work with your students, colleagues and community. Follow us on Twitter (twitter.com/DotClubConnect)! Visit the International Dot Day Facebook page (facebook.com/InternationalDotDay) and get connected today!
Share with others the ways you and your students will celebrate creativity in the classroom on International Dot Day and every day. We encourage educators interested in sharing student work to secure the appropriate permissions established by your school/district before posting to the International Dot Day Facebook page, your school blog or wiki, and a variety of other places. Or, create a Make Your Mark Museum in your classroom and hold an open house. The possibilities are endless.
When you register, please be sure to tell us how you will celebrate creativity in the classroom on Dot Day and throughout the year. And when you do, let us know if we can share your ideas and plans with others – there’s no doubt that your ideas will inspire others!
Encourage sharing of projects and creativity on Facebook, using the #dotday #makeyourmark #choose2matter #youmatter hashtags on Twitter, uploading and sharing video.
Skype in the Classroom
As part of its social good mission, Skype™ is committed to enabling share experiences that create wonder and inspire the world by removing cultural, technological and societal barriers to communications. Its flagship social good mission is Skype in the classroom, a free global community that invites teachers to use Skype to connect their students with other students from around the world. With Skype, students collaborate on classroom projects and teachers share ideas and inspiration to make teaching and learning more exciting and memorable.
For years, Skype has proven to be an invaluable resource as students and teachers celebrate International Dot Day and work together to foster creativity and collaboration all year long. For some great example of how Skype has been used as part of International Dot Day celebrations, check out the video “Two Libraries, One Voice Dot Day Celebration” posted in our "Get Inspired!" section. This inspiring video captured the collaboration of teachers Shannon Miller and John Schumacher who celebrate Dot Day with their students from two different states.
