Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education?

Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"There has been post after post acknowledging how educators love Twitter while also encouraging others to use it themselves. With that though comes skeptics (as there should be), questioning whether the use of Twitter is beneficial to educators. I have thought about that question a lot and I can give a definitive answer: yes and no ( I am 100% certain of this).

 

So to prove this, we have to look at a few things. First off, we have to look at how educators are using Twitter. Simply signing up for Twitter doesn’t improve anything in your classroom (similar to the notion that having a Twitter account will make people do inappropriate things and cyberbully). It all comes down to the use of it. I offer two scenarios in my own use of Twitter below."

Lori Wilk's curator insight, November 11, 2014 8:55 PM

This slide share #presentation demonstrates what #contentcuration is and how to integrate it into an effective #marketing plan for your #business. I liked the mention of tools including #scoopit, Prismatic, Newsle, Feedle, HootSuite, and Buffer to name a few. Finding relevant #content to share with your audience and having an organized way to connect this content to your audience are all important. It has to flow from finding the content to smoothly sharing and improving your #influence by expanding your #visibility and #reach. I love to say you must magnify and multiply your online efforts for #success.
