I made my first TikToK! It’s to support the Hurricane Unit I shared.
Here it is: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMRpATsWK/ It took several failed tries to figure out how TikTok works, but now that I’ve got it, I think I’ll try to make more. The music is The Fluorescents, which is my daughter’s band! (I know that’s a shameless plug, but what’s a Dad to do?)
Science teachers have been using social media for years to engage students. This really accelerated during the pandemic with distance learning as teachers looked for new ways to connect with their students. YouTube is the most popular platform, but there are teachers using Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and more.
We are excited to hear about the social media channels that CASE members are using to teach. So here’s the contest--end in the link to your account with a short description of where you teach and what the goals of your posts are. Here is the place to SHARE.
Every issue the CASE California Classroom Science (CCS- the thing you are reading right now) team will pick an account to share with the CCS community. Firstly, this will get you like a million followers. Secondly, you get to pick a free piece of swag from the CASE Goods Store. So share your channel and ascend to the level of social media science education influencer!
