The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) will host its next TweetFEST on Wednesday, Feb. 29, inviting teachers and administrators to share resources they’re using to teach the new Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS) during the 2011-12 school year.

KDE encourages teachers and administrators who use Twitter to tweet links to resources they are using to implement the KCAS in the classroom at any time on Wednesday and add the #teachkcas hashtag to each tweet. KDE also will retweet these resources on its Twitter timeline (@KyDeptofEd) on Feb. 29 to share the resources with KDE’s Twitter followers.

Not a Twitter user? You can sign up for a free account at School districts and individual schools that 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. If you have a question about the TweetFEST, please contact Stephanie Siria via e-mail at
