How To Create A Twitter List - A Step By Step Guide! - Edudemic | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

posted by Katie Lepi


"By now, you already know that Twitter is a great tool for teachers. Not only can you use it in your classroom to keep your students and their parents informed of what’s going on, you can also use it in class for projects and homework, and you can use it for your own professional development and PLN. Recently, we heard from a teacher who uses Twitter Lists to help manage her PLN and keep her sane when she’s trying to find the resources she needs. Twitter lists are a great way to maximize what you can get out of the tool, and an easy way to help you categorize and ‘file’ the people/things/information you’re after!"

What Hootsuite is, How to Use it and Why You Should ~ Sandy Appleyard | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"Hootsuite is a wonderful tool for auto-tweeting.  It is a vehicle for either syndicating your own content (blogposts, advertisements, reviews, etc.), retweeting a specific message or someone else’s, or advertising your own links.  The best part is, it is minimal effort, and you don’t have to be around to babysit."

Top Tech Trends and People of 2012

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

Twitter 101: 55 Tips to Get Retweeted on Twitter | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Retweets, you have heard about them, you know what they are but you aren’t gettin’ them.


For some reason you just can’t seem to get the engagement you are seeking, desiring and yearning for in social media and Twitter.

 

You may be new to Twitter and simply don’t know what the heck you are doing, how to get a retweet or why the retweets even matter. This post won’t teach you what Twitter is but provides good tips for tweetable content which you need regardless if you know what you’re doing or not (joking).

 

Or you may be a Twitter and social media veteran who just wants to boost your ego, increase your Klout score or simply show off for Grandpa this weekend how popular you are on the social waves?...

"Most of my Twitter interaction includes hashtags. I use a wide variety of hashtags to follow and participate in discussions around a particular topic. I do have some specific hashtags that I use on every day basis such as #edtech, #education, #phdchat, #ipadded and a couple more but sometimes my selection goes way beyond that to include other hashtags depending on the type of search I am doing."

How (And Why) To Try Twitter Teams In School - Edudemic

How (And Why) To Try Twitter Teams In School - Edudemic | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Shane Haggerty

summary by EdSurge


"Shane Haggerty recently added his two cents to the recently popular discussions on teachers’ use of Twitter in his Edudemic article on “Twitter teams.” After citing several examples of how Twitter benefits teachers and schools at large, he offers advice for creating K-12 “niche social communication communities” with hashtags and accounts relating to areas of expertise (“central office, the high school, the middle school, elementary schools, specialty areas, athletics”). Another upside: helping seemingly unapproachable administrators open up by fostering real-time communication and open reports on school ongoings."

11 Guaranteed Ways to Get Others to Retweet Your Content

11 Guaranteed Ways to Get Others to Retweet Your Content | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

After creating content -- whether it's a blog post, an ebook, a webinar, or a video -- it's important to promote that content through social media channels.

 

And when you do promote that content in social media, you cross your fingers that it generates a ton of shares, tweets, and interaction. For the sake of Twitter, if you follow a few simple best practices, more people are likely to retweet and spread the distribution of your content, giving it a much broader reach and a better opportunity to get found by a new audience of prospective customers beyond your direct followers. Marketers should know how to retweet the right way, but it's also critical for them to learn how to get others to retweet their content, too.
