Our school uses Twitter a lot. Here are some examples of how we use it....
-Our school hashtag is #HHSiBucs. Staff and students "tag" their tweets whenever the news is school-related.
-Holly Sutherland (another administrator) and I use it when we visit classrooms to share what students and teachers are doing
-When a student receives a Praise Referral, I take his/her picture and tweet the accomplishments
-At our school-wide Curriculum Night, we showed the #HHSiBucs twitter stream on a huge screen in the cafeteria during the meetings. Parents, students, and staff tweeted during the night
-We take pictures at assemblies, athletic events, meetings, etc. and share via Twitter
-Holly shares a motivational quote each school day
-We share links to our school's Engaged Learning Initiative blog
-The librarians tweet library happenings and events
-Each Monday night, Holly and I host #ALedchat from 9-10pm CST where we connect with educators from Alabama and all over the country
-Teachers share what their students are doing in class via twitter
Another teacher created class hashtags. She held a "Twitter Chat" during class by posting questions and having the students to respond to her and each other.
