26 Effective Ways to Use Twitter for Teachers & Educators Infographic

26 Effective Ways to Use Twitter for Teachers & Educators Infographic | Professional Development for Wisconsin Social Studies Teachers | Scoop.it

If you haven’t yet adopted Twitter as one of your go-to places for professional development and/or sharing pertinent info with coworkers, students and parents, you really don’t know what you’re missing! And it’s not just the latest celebrity drama!

 

Seriously, despite the 140 character minimum, tweets—articles, thoughts, opinions, inspiration, quotes, images and more—allow like-minded individuals (you and me) to connect, collaborate, discuss, exchange and even debate all sorts of ideas with virtual colleagues. Whether it’s best practices, instructional strategies, the latest and greatest tech tools or an innovative project, invaluable information is just a hastag away!

 

Check out the infographic below for an A-Z list of ways educators can utilize one of the most popular social media platforms on the edtech scene to make meaningful connections with others.

The power of the Infographic is that it references both teacher and student actions and habits. I have shared it with my teachers. This might become a solid self-assessment tool for coaching conversations with teachers.
