2018-19 Monthly District Twitter Chat #suhsdlearns
Check out #suhsdlearns to participate in our monthly district Twitter chat. Mark your calendars and join us! We will chat on the second Wednesday of each month, the same day we wear our Putting Students First t-shirts across the district. Just remember: T-shirt day = Twitter chat day! If you would like to moderate one of our chats, please contact Dr. Amy Illingworth (@AmyLIllingworth).
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).
