Twitter For Positive Promotion in Elementary School
Limited Capacity seats available

Look around you. Everywhere you look, businesses are telling their own stories. No add on TV tells how terrible a product is or what defect or imperfections may exist, so why do we wait and let others do so for us in education? In this session I hope that you'll walk away with some Twitter ideas to tell your own story. I'm no tech expert, but I can commit to a few minutes a day, to change the narrative. This session will encourage you to (1)tell your own story, (2) connect with other professionals, (3) gather encouragement from others in the field, (4) participate in online PD, and (5) impact our kids through implementation of awesome ideas.
