Many teachers, no offense, tend to be stuck in this mindset that using social media to your advantage is a bad thing.
I teach my students how to blog, write information packed tweet, hashtag (properly) and share things on all social media sites to get the most out of their hard work.
And yes, I do teach this to my journalism students as well as my Lang. Arts kids…with the rise of technology in today’s youth. Kids need to know how to spell, talk, write and use social media correctly.
How do I teach them this? With practice. The best example of these practices are myself. I have a few blogs, and every form of social media you can think of.
For this coming year, I have also gone viral with the way I raise money for my journalism class.
Go Fund Me is a great way to set a goal, and spread the word about this goal across your email list, Facebook friends and Twitter followers.You can reach your goal with your friends just clicking on the link and donating.
Here is my donation page. I am attempting to raise the money to help my students turn their class blog into a real student paper they can share with their classmates!

There you go. Just another way I am “not your average teacher”.
