Eduotopia

Updated best practices for instructors

Introduction

Social media nowadays is one of the strongest tools in socializing, communicating and staying connected to the world. Moreover, social media networking keeps a person up-to-date and enhances professional development in all areas. Connecting to my profession, I would like to be recognized as an educator so that I can share my experience and concerns and gain experience from educators. Educational social network websites, science networks and educators will be my concern to follow. I will also invite my colleagues to follow me and share our comments.

Plan

1. I will be using Twitter as the social media platform with the username @nyassine5

2. The focus will be on educational social networking especially Edutopia.

3. Posts will be mainly considering best practices for educators, science news and PBL.

4. Posts will be regularly on a daily basis.

5. Mac pro and ipad will be the devices used for posting.

6. I will choose my free time so my posts are selected effectively. Posts will be mainly in early morning and at night. I will avoid the busy working hours so that my followers have the chance to read and reply on my posts.

7. Negative comments will be a point of strength for me and I will be respecting different points of view. However, if comments are exceeding the limits of respect, i'll ignore it or delete it.

8. As the daytime is so busy and it is not easy to socialize, I will be able to reply to comments as soon as I log in my account.

9. By sticking to this plan, I will be able to socialise with colleagues and experts effectively, exchange experience and maintain professional developmen
