The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is excited to announce the launch of our new Facebook page, GR8by8, an online community where our Education & Learning grantees and early learning stakeholders can go for the latest early childhood news, exchange stories, discuss issues and build a common platform for early education advocates.
Making sure that all children — especially those most vulnerable — are ready to learn when they start school and armed with the tools to become proficient in reading and math is a key goal for the foundation. This is why we’ve created GR8by8, an initiative to facilitate a forward-thinking, online discussion about the importance of a good start and success by age 8. GR8by8 will also be used to showcase what’s working in communities to support early learning.
We have developed a social media guide to help you engage with the early childhood education online community. The guide, which can be downloaded by clicking on the link below, contains resources on when to use Facebook vs. Twitter, how to publish content online, tips on analytics and reporting tools, and how to manage multiple social media accounts.
