Use the #CAISCT to Connect with other CAIS Educators

Screen Shot 2013-12-11 at 2.44.33 PMCAIS educators want to use this year’s popular and successful Too Many Tools event to promote the use of the #caisct.  Taking advantage of the #caisct, Twitter conversations can happen before, during and after conferences and events. This practice will be a great feature for CAIS educators to continue their professional learning. How do you join the conversation? If the speaker presents something insightful or something that resonates with your professional life, tweet it. Other CAIS educators can learn more! Likewise, tweeting questions with the #caisct will help provoke useful and meaningful discussions.

If you are new to Twitter, don’t be shy.  This is a great event to try Twitter.  Note how all the major national conferences are using this practice.  Sign up for Twitter today and learn among great colleagues tomorrow night. Just be mindful to try to add a link to your Tweet (micro blog post) and most of all, remember the #caisct (hashtag), which will categorize our conversation. Or you can cram a 1000 words into 140 characters (Twitter restraint) by using an image. Get connected and join the sharing and learning today!

Here are easy steps to sign up for Twitter in 10 minutes:

About Bill Sullivan

I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
