3 Ways Social Media Can Improve School Culture - The Principal of Change

3 Ways Social Media Can Improve School Culture - The Principal of Change | eLearning through Social Media | Scoop.it
I was having a great conversation the other day with a good friend, and she was sharing how many boards aren’t really worried about “social media” because they are needing to actually focus on improving their culture first.  I thought a lot about what she said, and to be honest, if you cannot have conversations with people in your own organization, Twitter is going to be the last thing in your mind.  That being said, I have seen a lot of school organizations use social media to actually improve their culture significantly.  It is not the only way, but if used in powerful ways, it definitely can have an overall impact on your school or district.

One of the more interesting aspects of the modern web economy is the ability for talented people to transmit their expertise regardless of their location.

How to Be Successful on Twitter: 9 Surprising Stats to Know | eLearning through Social Media | Scoop.it

There are 284 million monthly active users on Twitter and chances are, you're one of them -- we're certainly are. Unfortunately, just because all of us are active on Twitter doesn't mean we're using it the right way. And thanks to SocialBro, we have new data from over 200,000 corporate tweets to prove what works on Twitter ... and what doesn't.

 

While some of it confirmed what we suspected, we were also shocked by some of the results. Have a read below and let us know if any of these stats were surprising to you, too...

When teachers and School managers use social media well and thoughtfully, they have the potential to get the message out. Social media combines with more traditional media to support information distribution.
