For Teachers and Schools

Social Media Messaging, Tweets, Posts, Tags

Spreading the word about your project can be instant through social media. But many of us are slowed down when it comes to choosing which words to spread. If you’re at a loss, try our suggestions in this document}

Remember, using hashtags creates searchable words by Twitter and other social platforms. Use #MyClassNeeds, #donate, #classroom or anything related to your project ex. #science, #music, #literacy or #yourschoolname, to make your project easier to find. To make it pop up in other feeds, hashtag with #Backtoschool, #Thanksgiving #Valentines etc.
