Twitter and Instagram Info
I believe that social media can be used to document and share students learning. Additionally, it is a great way connect home with what students are doing in the art room. For this reason we use Twitter and Instagram in the art room. The goal is to showcase a day in the life of a Lee Art student! This is a great way for parents to stay connected with what’s happening in the art room and see what your student is learning in real time!
These accounts are used only for Lee Art and are not personal accounts of Mrs. Stewart. If you wish to speak to Mrs. Stewart, please contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Below is more info for how these two social media platforms are used in Mrs. Stewart's Art class.
What will be tweeting and posting?
Mainly images of student artwork
Main art concept of the day. This could be about an artist, art history, art techniques, etc.
Art news and school event
What about online safety?
While the students will sometimes decide what we will tweet or post, Mrs. Stewart will control both accounts and will have the final say in what get posted. In order for anyone to see what is posted they must request to follow us and Mrs. Stewart must approve it.
Why tweet and post photos to Instagram?
It’s a great way for the Art classes at MSE to connect with parents
Student will learn to state main ideas/concepts in 140 characters or less (Twitter)
By “following” art museums, artists, and art educators student will get exposure to works art, new perspectives, and people who have art careers
Social media connects students to the art world outside of the classroom

Here is some useful Twitter lingo:
Tweet: a message posted on Twitter. Tweets can not be more than 140 characters
Following: If you follow you are subscribing to their Tweets as a follower. If you follow someone, you see what they are tweeting, they do not see what you are tweeting. If someone follows you, they see what you are tweeting, you do not see what they are tweeting
This is not like Facebook where if you are friends with someone you see their posts and they see your posts.
Mention: Mentioning another user in your Tweet by including the @ sign followed directly by their username is called a "mention.” Also refers to Tweets in which your username was included I am really excited about this idea but it will only be a success if we have parents and students who follow us.
