Top Tips gathered for ECTs

Updated: Oct 10, 2021

As many of you know, #TinyVoiceTuesday, is the system that I created on Twitter to help educators get answers to their questions. I love Eleanor’s (@MissRiddler) description of it:

#TinyVoiceTuesday is a great mathematical solution to the Twitter algorithms problem…with one tag and one hashtag you are automatically casting your net to a wide-range of professionals.

The hashtag is #TinyVoiceTuesday, the tag is me @toriaclaire. Once you ask a question using this tag and hashtag, then I tag in a wide range of professionals who will be able to answer your tweet. The ‘Tiny Voice Tuesday Tag Team’ otherwise known as #TVTTagTeam are the professionals who I tag in.

The #TVTTagTeam now consists of over 320 educators from nursery to FE and ranging in experience and roles. That means that when you ask a question on #TinyVoiceTuesday you are guaranteed a multitude of different answers to that question.

Last Sunday, Matt (@Teach_MrC) asked a #TinyVoiceTuesday question. Yes, I know it wasn’t Tuesday, but that is the beauty of #TinyVoiceTuesday it can be used seven days a week – just remember to tag me in.

I then put out the call to some of the #TVTTagTeam – the ones who specialise in NQT support and ITT. The great thing about the team is that not only do they answer the question, they will often retweet and tag in others which means that most questions get many, many answers.

Matt gathered lots of great answers to this question and was able to use them to support Initial Teacher Trainees in a presentation he did on Thursday (I know this as I work alongside Matt). To show you how fantastic the answers are and the wealth of experience that you have at the touch of a button (well a hash-tag and a tag), Matt has created a padlet which consists of all the answers he received on #TinyVoiceTuesday – thank you to everyone who contributed to this and his ITTs are very grateful for your help too.

So remember if you have a question use #TinyVoiceTuesday and @toriaclaire, I’ll then tag in the team! If I don’t do anything please DM me – sometimes my notifications are a little bit hectic.

I hope this makes sense and if you want to find out more about joining the #TVTTagTeam and what it means, I have written these articles…

#DailyWritingChallenge: Trust

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that two months ago I set up #TinyVoiceTuesday. This was born out of frustration as no one ever answered my questions and I wanted to create a place where other ‘tiny voices’ could ask a question and be answered. As this became more […]

I have also collated some previous questions asked on #TinyVoiceTuesday here

#TinyVoiceTuesday – The Questions Asked and Answered

#TinyVoiceTuesday began on Tuesday 11th February 2020 and at the beginning of March I wrote a post that consisted of the questions asked by the Tiny Voices and links to the threads (answers). I hoped that this would help others and it would appear it did – so I have done it again. This post incorporates the original […]
