Hello fellow CTE teachers,
Our CTE Promotional Task Force has been discussing ways for CCSD CTE and all of our programs to be more visible in the community and also on social media. Because social media is the main way most of our constituents receive information, we thought it was about time that CTE had a presence. To start this social media endeavor, I have created (you may already know this) a Twitter account for CCSD CTE. The name is @CTE_CCSD
Now, you may be thinking: I am not on Twitter, how/why will I use this? That is where I come in. If you have something that you feel is worthy of being shown, bragged about, or is just really cool, you can send me a short description (remember, Twitter is limited to 140 characters per tweet), a picture, a link, or all 3. I will then post it on Twitter through the CCSD CTE account. Obviously, you could also create your own Twitter account for your CTSO, department, or even individual class and make your own tweets.
If you already have a Twitter account for your class, department, or CTSO, please respond to this email and @CTE_CCSD will follow you. This will make it extremely easy for me to retweet your tweets and get what awesome things you do out to even more people!
Things to remember:
- If posting pictures, it is your responsibility to check that the student(s) in the picture have a signed media waiver either through your school or CTE.
- Promote this in your classes and in your school!!! The more students we can reach and show what amazing things are happening all over the district, the better.
- I am only one person. Please be concise and clear if you send me items to tweet. It may take me a couple days to get it posted, but it will happen. I'll do my best to get things out quickly.
- This will be a great way to communicate not only about our individual programs/CTSO's, but also for district CTE to announce internship deadlines, executive internship opportunities, and successes, etc.
Please let me know how I can help, or if you have any feedback on this matter.
