Twitter for Music Teachers

Transcript: What's the point? Case in point... But how??? Download Twitter on your iPhone or iPad! Then review your Twitter feed, Tweet, or comment right from your device! Still totally confused? Send me an email or call with any questions! Or better yet...tweet @mspatricianhfb! #elmusclass What is a Twitter chat? This is the name by which you will be known on Twitter. For instance, my Twitter handle is @mspatricianhfb. All Twitter handles are preceded by the "@" sign. Showcase what you're doing! Student work! Exciting announcements! Reminders for concerts and events! How can it be used in your classroom? Why??? This is a way to connect with others inside or even outside of APS! Use the @ sign with someone's Twitter handle and they will be notified about your Tweet! And most of our parents do too... #musedchat Tweet @ other APS schools, teachers, or central office- @APSArts, @SuptPKM Take pictures on your phone and share them right away! Have conversations with teachers and students at other schools or in different places in the country/world! Shameless plug time! A few music teachers and I started #elmusclass (elementary music class) on Twitter a few weeks ago, and we would love you to join the conversations with your classes! I tweet with my students at the beginning of each class and they love being able to see what other classes have said. At the moment, we are quite a small group, but APS can change that! So now...how do you expand your network? Use hashtags (#) to get more people to view/follow your Tweets! Twitter is a social media platform that allows you to send out quick messages for anyone to see. It is a great way to communicate with staff and parents and it allows you to connect to teachers on a global scale. Social Media is All Around Us #elmused Tweet @ others! Twitter for Music Teachers #APSArtsHappy Twitter chats are short discussions, usually between people in similar fields, that most often focus on a specific topic. For instance, every Tuesday from 8-9 PM, there is an #elmused chat. Elementary Music Teachers discuss anything from MIOSM to recorders to dance in the music classroom- the list goes on! Anyone is welcome, and even if you're new to the chat, you can "lurk" to see what you learn from it! What is Twitter? In my opinion, this is a wonderful way to connect with other music educators in a world where our profession is pretty isolated inside our schools. We barely see each other every year- this is a way to keep our conversations going! Our Students Understand It... Tell others what you're up to! Create your Twitter handle Once you have your account- you're ready to Tweet!! #elmusclass Most people call their network of education connections their "PLN" (Professional Learning Network) You can expand this by communicating with/following other APS colleagues OR you can take it one step further and start to learn from other educators on Twitter via Twitter chats!

Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.
