At present, we have almost a hundred more blog subscribers than Twitter followers and we’d like to encourage any of those who have yet to take the ‘plunge’ into Twitter to consider doing so. We share many interesting school-related items on Twitter (sometimes several times a day) that don’t warrant a blog post which would email all subscribers. In this way, Twitter provides a ‘window’ into the school and many smaller happenings that aren’t necessarily shared via the blog. What’s more, there are a growing number of Bayview Glen P.S. staff members on Twitter (see the sidebar on the blog which lists them all) for additional insights into particular classrooms and program areas. Similarly, the York Region District School Board is active on Twitter @YRDSB.
While Twitter may seem somewhat intimidating at first to new users, it has a quick learning curve … and signing up doesn’t require you to ‘Tweet’ any information yourself, rather you can simply follow those of interest to you. Just be sure to follow @bayviewglenps1!
