Creating a social media team at your school might be a new concept, but kids have been creating content for their schools in the yearbook, journalism class, or for the school newspaper. Followers find social media posts created by students to be much more interesting and engaging.

Active engagement on school social media accounts is a great benefit for schools. It keeps the community involved and up to date on activities. It allows the school to share pictures and comment on what is going on at school and school events. It builds interest for potential students and parents. Schools are starting to use student social media teams to create the content and posts that can safely go on the school's social media.

Student social media teams help schools:

• Teach digital citizenship by empowering students to create social media content.
• Provide students who have a passion for social media a meaningful way to create content while learning in a team environment.
• Encourage student engagement across events and activities.
• Empower student leaders to demonstrate by example and help with peer-reporting.
• Enable students to build a portfolio or resume when applying for future internship positions.

This session will provide the benefits, approach, how to, and examples for building a student social media team for your school.
