Test-takers’ tweets

Studying for tests is rarely enjoyable, but the JEA Certification Commission is trying to make CJE (and even perhaps MJE) review as painless as possible. In fact, content will be coming your way 140 characters at a time.

That’s right. Twitter is the commission’s new study tool. Beginning this week, specific info or links to helpful materials will appear as tweets on JEAcertified. Each of these will be tied to the organization’s Standards for Journalism Educators so you know they will cover the whole range of topics all good media teachers should know.

If you’re taking the Certified Journalism Educator test (or even the Master Journalism Educator test) in Portland, this will give you some insight into what to expect. The study guide does that, too, but the Twitter version might be a nice change of pace.

Besides, others who want curricular suggestions or additional background about everything from law and ethics to design to writing and reporting and more can benefit from the commission members’ posts.  Look for the #CJE hashtag or follow us on Twitter at jeacertified … and expand your skills needed to be a top-notch educator!!
