Coming Soon: MiPhone X with a Conscience Helps You T.H.I.N.K. Before You Post
We're fortunate in Minnetonka to have very talented and creative staff and students. One of these individuals, Andy Smith, is our A/V Production Specialist. Part of his job is to produce messages for the high school morning news show, including messages around Digital Citizenship. His most recent creation to get our students to T.H.I.N.K. Before They Post is about the MiPhone. The MiPhone is a futurist smartphone with a conscience that helps with posting appropriately and keeps its owner from getting into trouble or having digital regret. The video does a great job of getting students to reflect on what they digitize and communicate in a humorous way.
The video first appeared on the high school morning news show at the beginning of June 2015. The Beyond 140 series is a regular feature of the high school principal, Jeff Erickson, who with Andy's help, uses video to deliver messages to the 3,000 Minnetonka High School Students that go beyond the limitations of 140 characters of his Tweets. The student actor in the video is Eric V., a talented senior who just graduated.
