How can I become a connected educator and participate in the QCSD Twitter Challenge?

1) Create an account and begin to play. Use the Tutorials page for help.  Add your name to the list above or by clicking on this link

2) Look at the Weekly challenges on the left side of the website to stay on top of the #(hashtag) of the week as well as who to follow.  Do as many of the challenge activities as you feel comfortable with and are able to do.   

3) Using the weekly challenges, look for ways to share what is happening in your classroom and school. Highlight your sucesses. Share things that interest you and are  important to you and might be interesting and important for other educators like you.  

4) Make time to read your twitter feed.  Some people make time each day. Some people check it out once or twice a week.  Some people explore first thing in the morning. Some people read at night. Some people do it in short spurts throughout the day. No matter what works for you, carve out some time to learn and connect with one another and the world beyond #qcsd.  You will get out of it, what you put into it. 

5) Have fun. Ask for help. Help each other. Connect. Share. Learn.
