Connect. Engage. Inspire.
Utilizing social media to connect with fellow educators and engage parents and families is certainly time well spent for teachers and school officials. Connecting via social media tools such as Twitter, Tweetdeck, and Linkedin provides easy access to instructional resources, publications, feedback, and expert opinions. Engaging families through social media such as Facebook provides teachers and school officials opportunities to celebrate successes and keep parents informed about important events. Celebrating school successes and keeping parents informed serves to foster positive relations between school and home.
