Social Media in Education

After week one at Laying the Foundation, it became apparent that we are the best kept secret in education - what a perfect opportunity to use social media to get the word out.

So we have launched twitter @ltftraining, and our facebook page, blog and forums are coming.  So we are starting from scratch and will see how fast we can ramp up.

The goal of social media in education has to be to improve your performance metrics.  In our case, we want to increase:
  1. The number of teachers going through our pre-AP programs
  2. The effectiveness of those teachers by creating a full community of LTF teachers
Right now our website gets about 233 unique hits per day - pretty low.  So come along for the ride as we use social media for our non-profit education teach training group to take it to the next level!
