How do we create a more positive social media environment for students?
The answer (and the current social media challenge) is easier than you may think!
Quick disclaimer: This challenge is geared towards students age 13 and over - but could be adapted for a younger audience.
Social Media Challenge 3 Q3 (TKES 9 & 10)
1. Follow @PrincipalRyanMcLane on Facebook. He co-authored "Your School Rocks.... So tell People" with Eric Lowe. He is currently sending a positive message to his students every day through Instagram and even shares his messages in his Facebook news feed for others to use. Read his blog post here.
2. Build messages for your students using www.Canva.com (or copy @PrincipalRyanMcLane's messages and tag them with #yourschoolrocks).
3. Send/schedule positive messages to your students every day for two weeks through your class social media account.
4. Reflect on your experience in the comments of this blog post. Was Canva a helpful resource? Did scheduling your post ahead of time save you time throughout the week? How did you select your positive messages? What impact did it have on your students? Will you continue to post positive messages every day?
