IB Science Weekly Magazine – Get involved!

IB Science Weekly Magazine - do you want to be a news spotter?

IB Science Weekly Magazine – do you want to be a news spotter?

I kept seeing these paper.li posts in Twitter, so after a quick exhange with Adrienne Amichetti (@amichetti) decided to give it a go. There are lots of paper.lis out there, especially it seems in the ed-tech world. It was quick and easy to set up, though a bit of a fiddle to work out how posts were categorised and filtered (still not sure how it works).

The aim of this project is to provide a weekly publication which pulls in the current science and education news, for use in MYP, DP and PYP classrooms. 

If you would like to get involved and be an IB Science or Science Education news spotter, please head on over to Twitter and let me know. If you see some worthy news, simply tweet it with a link and a description, along with the hashtag #IBSciWeekly. The paper.li elves will see it and it should appear in the finished product. I will be able to curate the posts as they are published each week. If you think that everything you (or someone you recommend) is gold, I can include their Twitter handle or blog url as a source.

The details:

  • Address: http://tinyurl.com/IBSciWeekly
  • Hashtags: #IBSciWeekly, #MYP, #IBDP, #IBBio, #IBChem, #IBPhysics
  • Published: Weekly, on a Tuesday (I think)
  • NewsSpotters: IB Teachers and Students

Of course, things are bound to go wrong at first! I would love to find a way to share the editing jobs.

And here is a lovely video of a murmuration of starlings:
