BBJH Student Twitter and Instagram

This year our students will have a Twitter and Instagram account. Students in our new Social Media in the 21st Century class will be promoting BBJH through their Twitter account, @BBJH_21stMedia, and Instagram (BBJH_21stMedia). Follow these accounts to see their work and to see the great things going on at BBJH from the perspective of our students. Through this class and these accounts, we also want our students to be good models for social media etiquette.


Students in this class will also manage Pinterest pages that provide information on study tips and help in classes, music, clothing, sports, gaming, leadership and much more! You can visit the page by clicking HERE. All you have to have is a free Pinterest account.
