Ways to Reach Out on Social Media | Social Media Today

Ways to Reach Out on Social Media | Social Media Today | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
When it comes to reaching out, authenticity and being yourself is key. Remember, social media is about building relationships. And as any relationship expert will tell you, relationships are built on trust and connectivity.
gwynethjones's insight:

Adapt for Educational! This is great advice for building your PLN!

 

Suggestion: Don't ask an OBVIOUS question just to get someone to reply to a Tweet or an email. Do your homework.  Ex. For anyone who reads my Tweets or my  blog asking how I got my avatars seems lazy or inattentive. I've blogged, Tweeted, & written extensively on Avatar Generators.

 

Rather, ask what's your favourite use for an avatar? That's a creative question that starts a conversation that's not giving me extra work repeating myself (OK, I'm admittedly lazy!)

 

What gets me to follow you on Twitter? People who RT me & add their 2 cents in a smart funny way. People who I see don't ONLY RT but also share interesting stuff and share their work shamelessy & generously are most likely to get me to follow them. Those who complain or whine will not be followed. Who wants to talk to a Debbie downer at at party, right? Those who are positive, encourraging, optimistic, & fun! That's who I want to socialize with, don't forget the SOCIAL in social networking. Hey wait, this would be a good blog post, right?

 

Hmmm [deftly adds to her "must to post sugggestion draft folder"]

Studer Education's curator insight, July 29, 2013 12:37 PM

We must remember that every parent wants the best for their child, that parents are sending us ‘their best’ and what they value most, and that parents expect us to help their child be successful. This underscores the importance for us as the teacher to take the first step to invite and welcome parents to know us and to work with us to help their child find success. Education is all about relationships and as teachers must always extend our hand for the relationship to begin.

Jaime Parker's curator insight, July 10, 2013 2:22 PM

I have a friend who teaches English courses at the college level and this is her biggest complaint. She says that the students simply do not know how to research. They don't know how to use databases or how to evaluate websites which seems so crazy to me. I'm not sure why these skills aren't being taught or integrated into every content area. Perhaps too much time is being spent preparing students for standardized testing.
