10 Days of Twitter Challenge
We may not be having 12 Days of Xmas, but we are pleased to announce...
Take the 10 Days of Twitter Challenge and earn an extra planning period!
This was me just a few short months ago. Sure, I had an account. And I even posted a few things every now and then because we had a Twitter afterschool training one day. I didn’t really understand the purpose of Twitter. What I knew about it consisted of reading which celebrities were having plastic surgery this week, and who happened to be in a Twitter “war, “ exchanging less than positive tweets back and forth.
Now, I am no longer a “rookie” - I have participated in many Twitter chat and have made connections to people, mostly educators, all over the world. I have gotten so much feedback and so many resources from the network that has evolved through this social/information network. There is not enough time in the day for me to spend going through my Twitter feed to see all the great things the people I am following are doing with kids.
The best part, in my opinion, is being able to get out there ALL the fabulous things YOU are doing each and everyday in your classrooms. Twitter is so far-reaching – it does not confine students sharing their work to just their own classmates. The possibilities are endless.
This 10 Day Twitter Challenge has been designed especially for you Colt Rockstars. Complete each challenge below, and then submit the Google Doc (link at the end) for a chance to earn an extra planning period. Our team will cover your classes while you enjoy some free time!
