Thursday Interview - Creating Personal Student Brands

Join me Thursday, June 7th, for a live and interactive webinar with Christine DiPaulo and some of the students who have taken part in her iAm course on "personal branding." "Personal branding," she says, "is a current trend and is an ideal way to have high school students think about what they can do to create the Brand of YOU?" Christine and a team of Apple Distinguished Educators have created the "iAm Collection," an authoring curriculum for a course that anyone can teach which challenges students to find their voice through a series of introspective exercises:
Students begin by developing their own personal brand and express their discoveries through digital reflections, culminating with resuME, a dynamic presentation of the story of you. We want to inspire our students to tell their story and motivate them to be the best themselves they can be.
Christine will go through the iAm course and material with us, and several of her students will share their individual journeys--including personal brand statements, logo designs, and resuMEs.
