20+ UK Twitter Users Educators Should Follow

20+ UK Twitter Users Educators Should Follow | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Curating your Twitter feed is an interesting task. Sometimes you know exactly what you want to get out of the people whose Tweets you’re spending your time reading. Finding new people to follow on Twitter can range from being fun to being a total pain in the neck. Personally, I tend to look for people who seem interesting, follow them, and give them a ‘trial run’ of sorts, to see if I like what I see. Once they’re in the feed, it becomes clearer how much of an overtweeter they are, or if they really share so little that you miss it. I either keep or unfollow them from there. It works for me, but it does take time to curate the list, which sometimes, frankly, we just don’t have a lot of. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of 20+ folks who are tweeting about education in the UK for you to check out. We’ve included the descriptions they’ve offered of themselves as found on their Twitter profile page – a quick overview to help you decide if they might be interesting to you. The list is absolutely not meant to be exhaustive, but if you have some favorites that we haven’t included here (make sure they are UK focused!) do share them with us by leaving a comment below, mentioning @Edudemic on Twitter or leaving your thoughts on our Facebook page.

It's all about confidence, they say. Success in any form, be it vocational or interpersonal or what have you, all boils down to self-belief (or at least the appearance of it). But what about more quantifiable forms of success, like academic performance? You either ace the test or you don’t, but did confidence–or lack thereof–play a part in getting you there?

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in #eLearning) | Education Matters | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."
