Doing and Being Well: Summer Reading Campaign
|The Summer Reading campaign "Doing and Being Well" is available as an educational digital download on my TpT store.|
Summer is finally here, and for many of us, that means taking a well-deserved break from the demands of school or work. However, even though the academic year has ended, we should continue learning and growing. Reading is one of the best ways to expand our minds and stay engaged during the summer.

Video Repost: On Generation Z and the Art of Teaching (Or, What It Will Be Like to Have Gen Z as a Teacher)
In this post, I talk about Generation Z, TikTok, and What It Might Be Like to have a Generation Z teacher in twenty years.
Generation Z has been making waves in the social media landscape, particularly on platforms like TikTok. This cohort of digital natives has embraced this platform as a way to express their creativity and engage with others around the world. From funny videos to dance challenges and pranks, Gen Z'ers are taking full advantage of the freedom that comes with creating their own content on TikTok.
A closer look at how Gen Z-ers use TikTok reveals some interesting insights about this generation's behavior and preferences regarding social media platforms. For example, it appears that members of Generation Z prefer short video clips (less than 30 seconds) over longer format ones; they often post comedic content or take part in trends or challenges; they also love creating "duets" — videos posted by other users which allow them to join in on someone else's original post and responding to comments left by other users.
TikTok is not just used for fun, though — many members of Generation Z have found success by utilizing its features for marketing purposes.
Brands such as Nike have seen great success partnering up with popular creators who leverage their large following base across different demographics while giving exposure to new products and services offered by these companies. Additionally, influencers have made money directly from sponsored posts and collaborations via partnerships/brand deals available through TikTok's "For You" page (the main page where all recommended videos are posted).
Such lucrative opportunities might explain why more companies are now turning towards this platform for promotional campaigns targeting young people specifically due to its ability for rapid reach within a matter of days!
Overall, Gen-Z has proven itself adept at capitalizing upon the wide range of possibilities provided by social media platforms like TikTok - whether it be entertainment value or financial gain - making them an ever more important factor in today's marketplace environment moving forward into 2021 and beyond!
