4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about

4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Twitter is a powerful educational social networking website that has a huge potential for  teachers professional development.

 

Twitter is also ideal as a  PLN  where you get to connect with other educators from all around the globe and exchange teaching and learning materials with them. Building a PLN, however, requires making acquaintances with similar like-minded teachers and also developing your list of followers; but once you have such a solid PLN problems of maintaining it and staying updated with what others tweet become a tricky challenge.

 

I have curated for you some powerful tools to help you benefit the maximum from  the PLN you create on Twitter. Check them out below.
