The Twitteraholic's Ultimate Guide to tweets, hashtags, and all things Twitter

The Twitteraholic's Ultimate Guide to tweets, hashtags, and all things Twitter | ICT for Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it

Most educators who learn to use Twitter effectively say they learn more from their personal learning network (PLN) on Twitter than they've achieved from any other forms of professional development or personal learning."

Maree Whiteley's insight:

For those who have heard of twitter and have dismissed it thinking ‘”Twitter is for people with too much time on their hands” — think again! Educators are connecting with each other on Twitter and using it like a lunch room that’s open 24/7 whenever they need help, assistance or just want to connect with others...give it a go!
