The Ultimate Guide To Using Twitter In Education | Edudemic

The Ultimate Guide To Using Twitter In Education | Edudemic | educational technology for teachers | Scoop.it

Twitter seems to be here to stay. As one of the most popular ways for teachers, students, and the general public to communicate, it’s becoming a must-have tool in almost every teacher’s toolbox.

 

However, numerous recent studies have shown that education in general has been slow to adopt social media.

 

In an effort to speed up this adoption process, below you’ll find a boatload of resources on the past, present, and future of Twitter in education as well as some helpful guides to using the tool in the classroom.
