Social Media FOR Schools


Does your school embrace or block out social media?

Schools that I have read about in case studies, as well as schools in my local area, differ greatly with policies regarding social media. There are many aspects to look at when learning how to use social media for your school. The post below presents some information on social media in schools.

This post does not focus on any of these issues, but on the potential of using social media FOR schools. Telling the story of schools serves several purposes:
  • curation (find, filter, organize, connect and present) information for their stakeholders

  • creating connections and a network of schools to advance education
  • documenting institutional memory

Making a Silhouette in Microsoft Word

I had a teacher ask me about how to make a Silhouette without using something like Photoshop. There are some photo editing tools online that could accomplish this for a fee. However, if you already have Microsoft Word, this may be a quick and easy way for you.
