Day 161, Amy Illingworth

Did you know that there are over 250 SUHSD staff members on Twitter? Staff from all across the district are sharing learning and telling the Sweetwater story using the hashtag #suhsd. We even have a monthly district Twitter chat using the hashtag #suhsdlearns (named after this daily blog showcasing our community of learners!). Our next district Twitter chat will take place on Tuesday, May 9 from 7:00-8:00 PM.  The chat will be moderated by three staff members from our Equity and Culture department, Sonia, Mariana, and Molly. We will be chatting about creating a safe and healthy school environment.

If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat, it’s easier than you think!  We have an entire page of Twitter resources available on the Professional Growth website here, but this is a mini Twitter chat tutorial:

  • You need a Twitter account.
  • It works best if you are on a computer, rather than a phone or ipad.
  • It works even better if you use Tweetdeck.com, which allows you to view multiple columns at once.
  • You type #suhsdlearns in the search box in Twitter or Tweetdeck and you will be in the right place!
  • Our chat follows a Q1/A1 format. That means you will see one person tweet out Question 1 (Q1) and anyone participating can respond with their first answer by including A1 and #suhsdlearns in their tweet.
  • Answer questions and chat (via tweets) with your fellow SUHSD colleagues throughout the hour.
  • Have fun learning!
  • Consider submitting a written or video blog about what you learned in the #suhsdlearns Twitter chat!
