Communicating with Twitter

Hello friends! I have already started to get emails from teachers with questions about Twitter. Looks like communicating with families using Twitter was successful and something that many teachers want to continue this year. I am going to share some resources with you to get started with integrating Twitter as a communication tool.

Here's a short tutorial on how to remove followers from last year:

More suggestions and resources...

*Twitter forms for parents: http://bit.ly/TwitterforParents and http://bit.ly/TwitterDirections
You can access these forms on Google and then you can "make a copy" to modify the documents. Hit "file" & then "make a copy". Then you can edit the documents to hand out to parents. This is also something you can show at "Meet the Teacher" night.

*Here are some education hashtags that you may want to include in your tweets or that you may be interested in especially if you use TweetDeckEducation Hashtags
(From Alan November's November Learning)

*Here is a website that allows you to view and print all of your Tweets that you may need for data purposes: All My Tweets

*If you choose to deactivate your account you may want to change the email and username before deactivating. If you do not, you cannot use the email or username for 30 days.

*Have fun creating your new or first Twitter name with your class! The kids enjoy voting on a name and it gets them excited to begin tweeting all of their hard work! Please follow me @AllisonImperio

Hope this post was helpful! Please let me know if you have any questions.
