The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) will begin hosting a monthly TweetFEST to invite teachers and administrators to share resources they’re using to teach the new Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS) in the 2011-12 school year.

The first TweetFEST was Oct. 25, and each subsequent TweetFEST will be on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the 2011-12 school year (except in December).

KDE encourages teachers and administrators who use Twitter to tweet links to resources they are using to implement the KCAS in the classroom and add the #teachkcas hashtag to each tweet.

Not a Twitter user? Those interested can sign up for a free account here. School districts and individual schools who have a Twitter account also are welcome to tweet resources during the TweetFEST.

KDE uses the KDE Twitter feed to share information and converse with the education community and the residents of Kentucky. For more information about the TweetFEST, contact Stephanie Siria.
