February Challenge: Twitter

twitter in 60 seconds

Your Twitter Challenge (Due by February 28, 2014)


The goal of this challenge is to get you using Twitter more to help you in your teaching and learning.


Mission Part 1: Lurking and Retweeting

Your mission is to log on to Twitter and lurk for a bit. Maybe lurking for you is following the tweets by your followers. Lurking could also be searching (in search bar) for a hashtags such as #ginwvikings #ginwow #iosedapp #nebedu #nebedchat #sschat #edchat (or others) and surfing through the tweets. When you find something you would like to share, simply retweet (use tweetdeck or iOS device) and add the #ginwow hashtag to it. This will allow others following our #ginwow hashtag to see what others are sharing. By simply "retweeting" (RT) one thing with this hashtag, you have completed Mission Part 1.


Mission Part 2: Tweeting with hashtags

Mission part two is to take it to the next level. Your mission here is to share something with your "Twitterverse". Tweet something happening in your classroom, an article you found beneficial and would like to share, or even something encouraging to another Twitter user. Again, use the #ginwow hashtag in your tweet and Mission Part 2 will be complete.


I will follow the #ginwow hashtag for entries into this month's drawing.


Those completing both missions will be entered into this month's drawing for an iTunes card.


Feel free to follow the Hashtag here.
