CIES on Twitter

In our continuing effort to expand our social media reach, CIES can be found on Twitter. Follow us at #YYCCIES, tag us in your own posts and share with your students. 

The best way to get the most out of Twitter is to use it. It is an amazing resource for ideas on education and teaching, and here you can find a great guide for educational hashtags to follow to point you in the right direction. As an example here what we found when you search #ESL or another like #TESOL. Follow people you find interesting, exchange ideas and conversations with others using the #hashtag, conversations you can choose to become involved in. And if you find interesting things on Twitter, such as lesson plans idea or classroom activities, share them.

Just like going to the gym once every two weeks isn't going to keep you in top shape, participating in Twitter #hashtag chats and interacting only occasionally isn't going to establish a Twitter community for yourself.  You don’t have to be am obsessed Tweeter by any means to stay regularly involved – but it is important to check in regularly to get the most you can our of what is a great tool.
