EDHS Social Media

Don't forget that we are looking for pictures, student work, announcements, upcoming activities and more to post on our website, FB and on Twitter. Please let us know in the Media Center when you have things going on. If you take pictures on your iPad or phone, you can email them to me so that we can post them. We can't post if we don't know what is happening and I know that we have some awesome things happening in our classrooms.

If you are on Facebook or Twitter and post something happening at EDHS use the hashtags #EDHSEagles and #DCSschoolSPIRIT.

What is Digital Learning Day?

Digital Learning Day is a day to celebrate the great things happening with digital learning. It doesn't mean you have to create a new lesson, it is showing off what we already do at EDHS. Do you use Chromebooks, Google Classroom, Canvas, Kahoot, Stop Motion, Paper Slides, etc. We want to highlight the fabulous digital learning taking place at EDHS. Please let us know if you will be engaging your students with activities that involve digital learning, so that we can stop by and take pictures. You can also post pictures of what is happening in your classroom on Digital Learning Day Feb, 17th using the hashtags: #EDHSEagles and #DLday.

In the Media Center that day we will be open during each class period with stations to share a few fun activities using Digital Learning. Stop by during your planning to check them out. We will be doing a drawing for lots of goodies from the names of the teachers that stop by during planning. Remember, you don't have to stay the whole planning period.

Some of the stations will include:

  • Green Screens
  • Stop Motion Videos
  • Google Cardboard
  • Plickers
