Twitter has had a major impact on the HCPSS in terms of quickly delivering system-wide and school-based messages and stories. However, our educators and support staff are finding other outstanding uses for Twitter such as leveraging the platform to enhance their professional learning network. Word spread and more staff members wanted to receive training on how they too can utilize Twitter as a resource and not just for one-way messaging.
In this particular training module, we focused on TweetChats. Class participants learned a bit about basic etiquette, link shorteners, third-party sites they can leverage, and then we held a class TweetChat. As a follow-up we held various county-wide chats in which class participants could participate.
This is the Powerpoint presentation that I created for our session.
