Tweet Us Some #Inspiration Part 2

A few weeks ago, I shared about our inspirational quotes Twitter program. Go here if you didn't get to read it! Since that time, I have continued to Tweet successful people and celebrities for inspirational quotes to share with our learning community. Others on our faculty have even joined in this activity! Our high school principal and two other teachers have Tweeted out to get inspirational Tweets from successful people in their networks. In addition, we have started receiving positive Tweets from recent Lakeside High School alumni.

To show off these Tweets, one of our library assistants (Mrs. Peggy Schaeffer) came up with a great iPhone display to hang on the library walls and doors!

Mrs. Schaeffer put small text balloons in the messages to identify the name and position of the people that sent the Tweets.

She used the #inspiration hashtag on signs to attract attention.

Students have been stopping to read the Tweets ever since we posted them!

Our students have also enjoyed reading Tweets from recent alumni! Mrs. Schaeffer has made small Tweets to display on the library shelves. 

This has been a great way to model digital citizenship by sharing positive messages via social media. We will keep working for more ways to model these crucial skills that students will need as they prepare to enter the professional world of work and communication.
