Innovation: Education

Meet @ThisIsVTED

A twitter showcase of amazing Vermont schools

@ThisIsVTEDWish you could see more of the innovative ways Vermont students and educators are changing learning? Have difficulty finding a full year to travel around the state?

Let twitter help. With @ThisIsVTED.

What is @ThisIsVTED?

@ThisIsVTED@ThisIsVTED is a new twitter account for all of Vermont’s education community.

Each week, a different educator, administrator, group of students or school will use the account to share the incredible work being done in schools all over the state.

What does @ThisIsVTED look like?

Superintendent Ned Kirsch and the entire Franklin West Supervisory Union drove the account in its inaugural week, and this is some of what they shared:

What’s next for @ThisIsVTED?

@ThisIsVTEDNext up on the rotation: principal John Craig will be sharing some of the wonderful work students and educators are doing at Hazen Union School, in Hardwick VT. Make sure you’re following the @ThisIsVTED account to catch it all.

 

Want to drive the @ThisIsVTED account?

We’re still looking for hosts for the fall semester! There are a few slots left, so sign up via this handy Google spreadsheet.

To drive the account, you need to post a minimum of three times a day, with no upper limit on how many times you post. Open the floodgates: photos, videos, deep thoughts, links to blogposts, event announcements — whatever is happening at Hazen that you’d like both the education and Vermont communities to know about. We want you to get your stories out there!

And don’t forget about #VTED chat

Save the date: the next #VTED chat is this coming Thursday, 9/22 @ 8pm EST.

What do you want to share about the way you’re changing learning in Vermont?
