Family Literacy Day: Social Media Guide (2011)

Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy‐related activities as a family. This guide offers suggestions for using social media like Facebook and Twitter to promote the day.

It contains a series of prewritten “tweets” touching on a variety of literacy-related topics, including suggestions for turning everyday chores like making dinner into learning activities. There is also a list of Facebook discussion topics and poll questions.

The authors have provided a list of Canadian literacy organizations that maintain Twitter accounts.
