For my twitter project, I followed a lot of different education sites, but my favorite account out of all of them was Great Schools. I really enjoyed this account because they seemed to be focused on having a learning community within the classrooms, like Rowan University.
With October being Anti-Bully month, the last 6 day’s posts has consisted of tweets and retweets on ways to see if your child is being bullied, or if they are the ones bullying. This is really important in today’s society because of technology. Since kids always have access to the internet, cyber-bullying has been a huge problem. Great Schools helps spread the word for signs of bullying, and i believe that is great that their twitter posts are really focused on this month’s awareness.
Great School’s following list does not surprise me. The account pretty much only follows other education sites, which only limits what they see, and that may cause a problem. But, that site is solely used for schooling and nothing else, so it is understandable. Following sites like Great School’s really opened my eyes to the passion some people have for teaching, which makes me more excited for my future as a teacher in a elementary school.
