Our PBS Course Has Ended: Now What?

Our  PBS course concluded last night and, even after 12 years of course facilitation, I miss you all.

Here, I make my pitch for dedicated educators, parents (and especially parents who are educators!) to get very involved in your local school politics. The school board, the local teacher representation board, the local PTA are excellent ways to navigate your local education system and provide your expertise.

All: please consider yourself nominated by me, for your next level of educational service!!

Considering the concept of eBooks for younger learners

This week in our PBSTeacherLine course, Teaching Lifelong Reading Habits, we are reading about, thinking about, and digitally posting about electronic books. We’re firing up our Kindles- it promises to be a page-turner!

After exploring the pros and cons of electronic books you will learn where and how to find free eBooks, identify the skills your students need to be able to use them, and explore a wealth of resources that help you integrate them into the classroom. Here are a couple of link edits to note:

Fun Facts About Hashtags

As a pre-course activity for my PBS TeacherLine class, “Teaching Lifelong Reading Habits” I constructed a hashtag survey. The intent of the survey was for the class to create, vote, and decide on a common hashtag for us to use during our class.

Here are a few fun hashtag facts that I learned in the process:

Engagement Benefits from Hashtags…Sometimes: Posts with 1-2 hashtags have 21% more interest and by extension, more engagement than those without hashtags (Andersen, 2018; Lee, 2018).

 


 

The carbon dating for the first hashtag is circa 2007:

Hashtag Tips from Social Media experts:

  1. Learn from the best- look at the posts of folks you admire or influencers and scroll to see the hashtags they use
  2. Consider related hashtags
  3. Identify hashtags that resonate with you
  4. Proofread your hashtag to make sure it is not being used in a different (or gasp-worthy) context
  5. Only use 1-2 hashtags for maximum engagement from your readers (Anderson, 2018)

Best quote related to hashtagging and social media: The currency of social media is the share. ~Courtney Seiter


There’s even a podcast dedicated to the humble hashtag called– The Science of Social Media


 

Because their purpose is to expand the conversation, Hashtags hug constructivist learning theory.

Keep practicing your hashtag I.Q. and you will be ready for the next World Social Media day on June 30, 2019

SocialMediaDay

The hashtag for this day is, natch, #SMDay

Happy Hashtagging!!
