Promethean (http://www. prometheanworld. com/), a world leader in the rapidly growing global market for interactive learning technology, launched a social media campaign to thank the many devoted, inspiring teachers across the country. Launching on May 3rd in conjunction with Teacher Appreciation Week, Promethean built a Facebook page (http://bit. ly/thankateacher2day) and are encouraging students and adults alike to take a moment and thank a teacher who made a difference in their lives.
Anyone can post a video or send a message to a teacher. Promethean also invites participants to take their gratitude a step further and attempt to find their teacher via Facebook, Twitter, or another social network and let them know they are appreciated in the social media space.
Already, the Facebook page features Thank-a-Teacher photos and messages from Ludacris, Debbie Allen, Denise Austin, Richard Simmons, and Lisa Wu Hartwell. Not just for celebrities, but this is a site for every single person whose life has been transformed by a teacher and the notes are heartfelt and powerful. Stacy McHugh commends her teacher from Hickman Mills in Kansas City, MO admitting, "I still know all of my French words and dinosaur names."
Joseph GodsProperty Pannell confesses that he was one of the early "bussed students" in NYC in the 60's traveling from Harlem to mid-town Manhattan. He thanks his teacher Mr. Aberbach for instilling " a desire to be more than my environment." The Facebook page provides a testament to the power of teachers in the lives of students and provides a social media friendly way to honor and appreciate teachers.
