The Ontario Literacy Coalition, ABC Life Literacy Canada, and Frontier College joined forces to prepare this guide to using social media to promote International Literacy Day, celebrated every year on September 8. For 2011, the partner organizations chose to focus on the importance of literacy and essential skills for everyone, everywhere.
The authors have included information about activities the partner organizations have planned for International Literacy Day. As well, they have provided pre-made “tweets” to be used on the social networking tool Twitter or turned into Facebook status updates.
They have also included Facebook posts and discussion questions; poll questions organizations may want to ask visitors to their sites; and a list of literacy organizations that are on Twitter.
