Check out #suhsdlearns to participate in our monthly district Twitter chat.
The August District Twitter chat was all about how to use technology in our schools, moderated by teachers Valerie Ruiz and Trevor Angood. You can read the archive here.
On May 9 we chatted about a safe and healthy school environment with our guest moderators Sonia Picos, Mariana Gomez, and Molly Ravenscroft, from the department of Equity and Culture.
In April we chatted about Digital Citizenship with our guest moderator Mari Venturino, a teacher from MVA.
Twitter can be a phenomenal tool for individualized professional growth. Here in the SUHSD you can see great things happening around the district by following the district hashtags #suhsd #suhsdlearns and #teamsuhsd. If you tweet out learning from your classroom, site or department, we encourage you to include the district hashtag. Even if you don’t have a Twitter account yet, you can go to Twitter.com and type “#suhsd” into the search line to see the tweets your district colleagues are sharing.

In addition to tweeting about the great teaching and learning taking place on your campus, Twitter can also be used to collaborate and connect with educators from around the globe.
There are education-related twitter chats every day of the week (at all times of the day and night- see the schedule below!). A wide variety of educational hashtags exist that can connect you with colleagues from around the world who teach the same content as you, or work with similar student populations, or colleagues who are also trying out new teaching methods in their own classrooms and want to share ideas. We encourage you to explore twitter to build your own Professional Learning Network (PLN).
