How spending marketing dollars works...
 Choose your target audience
Reach the right audience by targeting based on interests, geography,
gender, device, or users similar to your followers. In addition, maximize
the relevancy of your message by targeting by keywords in people’s
Tweets.
 Amplify your message and get discovered
Get your Tweets and your account in front of more people who are
interested in you.
 Set a budget and pay for what works
Only pay when users follow your account or retweet, like, reply, or click
on your Promoted Tweet. You’re in complete control. There’s no
minimum spend, and you can start and stop at any time.

points onhowyou
cantakeadvantage
of this as atool..
1
Tweet about upcoming due dates or assignments.
One of the simplest ways that teachers can use social media
in the class room is to set up a feed dedicated exclusively to
due dates, tests or quizzes.
This will work for Twitter and Facebook very well.
Share links from a class blog.
Provide the class with a running news
feed.
Subscribe to different mainstream and
independent news feeds with different
biases as a way to compare and contrast
how different perspectives interpret
current events and issues.
It also eliminates any excuses about
students not getting emails about class
changes, school closures and emergency
updates.
2
Coordinate assignments.
Rather than keeping up with an e-mail train,
students can use Twitter to collaborate on
different projects and keep a
quick reference on any changes.
Encourage students to take and share notes
online - a grade for creativity and quality can
be offered.
2
Twitter for instructors ( basics)
Track / Create a hash tag.
Incorporate hash tags that pertain to lessons,
build community, track government, or show what
is going on locally or in a location you are
studying.
Ie: Shakespear
Follow the Globe: https://twitter.com/The_Globe
Check out their list: Educators
It may lead you to this hashtag
https://twitter.com/hashtag/edchat
3
#edchat
Follow the issues through lists
Create lists by topic, issue or location and
have use the relevant information to what
you are studying.
3
Live Tweets
This can be great on field trips for
reporting back research - set up a
hashtag or set up a Twitter handle to
mention when posting to twitter with the
140 characters allowed ( but leave at
least 7-10 over for rt or replies)
4
Other Best Kept Twitter Secret -
.@
https://www.themuse.com/advice/mystery-dot-the-best-
kept-secret-on-twitter
Schedule questions and encourage quotes
You can use a tool like Hootesuite to post links to
references in lectures or course work to
download
- the Hootlet
5
Take a basic course on Hootsuite for free
When You Set up Reusable Tools and Feeds:
Keep a spreadsheet of posts for history lessons or other projects you
will be using again.
Tweek them as you go and find the text that students will interact
with.
You can set up hashtag and feeds that represent roles, references to
assist with the learning process in an interactive way.
6
Interact with other classroom and teachers
Connect with other instructors and find ways to connect
students on co-learning and online learning experiences
that will assist with enhanced engagement.
Share a hash tag...
7
“Communication leadsto community, that is, to understanding,
intimacy, and mutual valuing.” Rollo May
Politics and News – check with a serious outlet before taking it
serious... as me about Mandela...
More than ever politicians are online.
They often have valuable knowledge, access to information or event
that could be useful for a class.
Encourage students to use interact with their government
representatives in a respectful, healthy way that creates trust, shares
information and builds a better learning environment and community.
8
For literature and writing classes:
Look for teaching moments to write reviews on
Twitter, Facebook or other microblog sites.
Teach students about the impacts on business of
a good or bad review.
Show them the impact their words have, good
and bad on a business, cultural or music event
and to choose their words wisely.
When I looked up the #Literature:
Bibliophilia @Libroantiguo Nov 22
André Gide, French author and winner of the
Nobel Prize in Literature in 1947, was born on
this day in 1869.
9
Research / Development and Sample
Questions for Exams:
You can post questions that will assist in
preparation for exams without having to hand
anything out. ( keep these questions in spread
sheets for each class or use an aggregator.
9
Complimentary material:
Look for materials on line through hashtag
or
https://twitter.com/search-advanced
that pertain to the class and re-post
interesting tidbits, create lists of
complimentary feeds.
Use these for discussion if needed or use
for break out group discussion.
10
Direct messaging to students:
some recommend this but often Twitter
messages are so full of spam like email it does
not get read.
NOT RECOMMENDED...... Just NO....
11
Doing Surveys or quizzes:
You can easily posts quizzes and
survey with a link to Survey Monkey or
to a school site with a quiz or just post a
daily question or math problem for
students to respond to for points that
can count towards their grade.
12

  • 3. About Twitter – The Basics
  • 8. Thank you to Coburg Senior High Staff Whatis ahashtag...
  • 9. Orthis: fromthebirds mouth... How spending marketing dollars works...  Choose your target audience Reach the right audience by targeting based on interests, geography, gender, device, or users similar to your followers. In addition, maximize the relevancy of your message by targeting by keywords in people’s Tweets.  Amplify your message and get discovered Get your Tweets and your account in front of more people who are interested in you.  Set a budget and pay for what works Only pay when users follow your account or retweet, like, reply, or click on your Promoted Tweet. You’re in complete control. There’s no minimum spend, and you can start and stop at any time.
  • 10. What we aren't covering today...
  • 15. 1 Tweet about upcoming due dates or assignments. One of the simplest ways that teachers can use social media in the class room is to set up a feed dedicated exclusively to due dates, tests or quizzes. This will work for Twitter and Facebook very well. Share links from a class blog.
  • 16. Provide the class with a running news feed. Subscribe to different mainstream and independent news feeds with different biases as a way to compare and contrast how different perspectives interpret current events and issues. It also eliminates any excuses about students not getting emails about class changes, school closures and emergency updates. 2
  • 17. Coordinate assignments. Rather than keeping up with an e-mail train, students can use Twitter to collaborate on different projects and keep a quick reference on any changes. Encourage students to take and share notes online - a grade for creativity and quality can be offered. 2
  • 19. Track / Create a hash tag. Incorporate hash tags that pertain to lessons, build community, track government, or show what is going on locally or in a location you are studying. Ie: Shakespear Follow the Globe: https://twitter.com/The_Globe Check out their list: Educators It may lead you to this hashtag https://twitter.com/hashtag/edchat 3
  • 21. Follow the issues through lists Create lists by topic, issue or location and have use the relevant information to what you are studying. 3
  • 22. Live Tweets This can be great on field trips for reporting back research - set up a hashtag or set up a Twitter handle to mention when posting to twitter with the 140 characters allowed ( but leave at least 7-10 over for rt or replies) 4 Other Best Kept Twitter Secret - .@ https://www.themuse.com/advice/mystery-dot-the-best- kept-secret-on-twitter
  • 23. Schedule questions and encourage quotes You can use a tool like Hootesuite to post links to references in lectures or course work to download - the Hootlet 5 Take a basic course on Hootsuite for free
  • 24. When You Set up Reusable Tools and Feeds: Keep a spreadsheet of posts for history lessons or other projects you will be using again. Tweek them as you go and find the text that students will interact with. You can set up hashtag and feeds that represent roles, references to assist with the learning process in an interactive way. 6
  • 25. Interact with other classroom and teachers Connect with other instructors and find ways to connect students on co-learning and online learning experiences that will assist with enhanced engagement. Share a hash tag... 7 “Communication leadsto community, that is, to understanding, intimacy, and mutual valuing.” Rollo May
  • 26. Politics and News – check with a serious outlet before taking it serious... as me about Mandela... More than ever politicians are online. They often have valuable knowledge, access to information or event that could be useful for a class. Encourage students to use interact with their government representatives in a respectful, healthy way that creates trust, shares information and builds a better learning environment and community. 8
  • 27. For literature and writing classes: Look for teaching moments to write reviews on Twitter, Facebook or other microblog sites. Teach students about the impacts on business of a good or bad review. Show them the impact their words have, good and bad on a business, cultural or music event and to choose their words wisely. When I looked up the #Literature: Bibliophilia @Libroantiguo Nov 22 André Gide, French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1947, was born on this day in 1869. 9
  • 28. Research / Development and Sample Questions for Exams: You can post questions that will assist in preparation for exams without having to hand anything out. ( keep these questions in spread sheets for each class or use an aggregator. 9
  • 29. Complimentary material: Look for materials on line through hashtag or https://twitter.com/search-advanced that pertain to the class and re-post interesting tidbits, create lists of complimentary feeds. Use these for discussion if needed or use for break out group discussion. 10
  • 30. Direct messaging to students: some recommend this but often Twitter messages are so full of spam like email it does not get read. NOT RECOMMENDED...... Just NO.... 11
  • 31. Doing Surveys or quizzes: You can easily posts quizzes and survey with a link to Survey Monkey or to a school site with a quiz or just post a daily question or math problem for students to respond to for points that can count towards their grade. 12
  • 34. Posting video content: ● You can post an Iphone video of instructions ● Links to recommended lectures ● Audio file of clarifications for group work.. ● Or links to Google Hangouts that are coming up or were recorded. 13
  • 35. Hashtags to connect with other educators: #educhat and more http://www.teachthought.com/twitter-hashtags-for-teacher/ Usefully social tools: http://www.tweetstats.com/ https://www.csc.ncsu.edu/faculty/healey/tweet_viz/tweet_app/ 14
