Help Us Unblock Twitter

Help us unblock Twitter

First off, if you want to help, tweet to #mnpsBofEd your thoughts about how twitter helps you as a teacher, student, or business person. Also share ideas for now you think it helps in education

🙂 PLEASE PLEASE send those tweets! many of you are reading and tweeting the post, but we also NEED your voice through twitter. 🙂  I am hoping to get 1000 by Monday evening. The meeting is on Tuesday. 🙂

If you are receiving this Tweet and link then you have the potential to help me convince the Board of Education in Nashville of the value of Twitter in education with students, teacher PD, science communication, professional life, etc.

I am meeting with the school board for my district on Tuesday April 9th. I would like to give them a nice long list of Tweets explaining the value of twitter as seen through your eyes. I realize some of the Tweets may sound redundant but repetition has great value.

The goal is to convince the board of the value and necessity of twitter in the lives of professionals as well as the benefits it can provide to students in public schools. IE – learning digital responsibility, communication with professionals….

So please share your thoughts on the benefits of twitter – use hastags

  • Educators – #mnpsBofEd    #mnpsEDUS

  • Scientists/science writers – #mnpsBofEd    #mnpsSCI

  • Professionals – #mnpsBofEd     #mnpsPRO

  • Students – #mnpsBofEd  #mnpsStu


PLEASE post your thoughts on the benefits of twitter in education or the professional world to the hashtags above. 

Thank you for your help! And please share with anyone you think is willing to help!! 🙂

    With prior parent approval, in MNPS Encore classes last year students set up twitter accounts to chat with one another and their teacher about group projects. Since classes met weekly, this proved to be a beneficial way to a promote collaboration between class meetings.

    We have Twitter open for students and teachers. Guess what? Nothing bad has happened and only our best teachers use Twitter.

    We have a responsibility to lead kids through the process of creating their digital image.

  5. Great idea, twitter should not be blocked in any school.
