Stepping into the social media scene at Eagle Ridge, we looking to do the following:
- take advantage of an opportunity to communicate
- provide a window into school/classroom
- tell the Eagle Ridge story
Looking into the 14/15 school year, our focus is not to change the percentages we saw from the baseline. We really felt comfortable with where the bulk of our posts were (information & celebration), but we wanted to increase the counts in the other areas (engagement, learning, C&I). That means we're out in classrooms more with device in hand catching the learning as it is happening which is where the Eagle Ridge story resides! We are being bold in sharing articles and blog posts that we feel would be valuable to our community and that we are engaging them in the tool! We are finding we have to be much more intentional about our use of the tool in order to work towards our goals. Not such a bad thing, right!?
I've linked the data tracking document here. All functions are already embedded so all you have to do is save it as your own and take a look back at your journey to fill in counts. As I did this last year and this year, it is really enjoyable being able to relive some of the great moments and great work that has been produced by own amazing staff and students!
Let's get the conversation going! What are some of your goals for your school and social media this year?
