Outside The Bubble


Aug 22, 2019

In this episode of Outside The Bubble I’m chatting with Dr. Samantha Fecich, Professor, Author, Speaker, Podcaster, and PSL fan! 

Sam is passionate about helping preservice teachers up their social media game and build an incredible online presence - the kind you’re not embarrassed about people, especially potential employers, finding. 

While Sam is passionate about the work she does with preservice teachers our conversation goes into tips, tricks, and strategies for all teachers and students. 

Topics covered in this episode include: 

  • Why teachers need social media 
  • Understanding how to shape and control your digital presence
  • Assignments so we understand where we are online and what to do if we don’t like what we find
  • Why it’s important to be a connected educator
  • What type of content to post and where
  • How to build a Twitter PLN
  • Finding and using hashtags 
  • Optimizing your social  media pages
  • Tools you can use for social media 
  • How to show up on social media when you feel like you have nothing to say
  • How to show up on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook 

 

My favorite from the episode: 

“Spreading little bread crumbs of awesomeness over the internet”
