Using the hashtags below will enable you to stay updated about the  latest releases in the world of educational apps.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Twitter for Teachers | Scoop.it

Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

twitter alone might not be sufficient, as we (or most of us) not 'always online', we have to do other things. combining twitter with a mechanism to comb through the # and compile personalized feed, would be useful.

I'm a fledgling tweeter but love the way Twitter ignites discussion and ideas within a professional community.

101 Tweet-Tastic Tools for 2013

101 Tweet-Tastic Tools for 2013 | Twitter for Teachers | Scoop.it

As much as I love Twitter, I have to admit I haven’t seen that familiar blue Twitter home page in quite a while. Why? because although Twitter is amazing, I can only fully leverage it by using a range of Twitter tools.

 

I’ve written several blog posts on Socialable about some of my favorite and most used Twitter tools but I thought it would be a good idea to create a series of 101 of the top social media and blogging tools.  So here is the first in the series – and it made sense to start with Twitter seeing as it’s my social media “weapon of choice” and generates over 50% of the traffic to Socialable.

101 herramientas para Tuitear: un buen repaso de casi todas las aplicaciones útiles que hay por ahí.... y a todas estas, ¿qué herramienta le echas en falta al twitter?

Eduardo Area Sacristan's curator insight, March 14, 2013 11:40 AM

Por mucho que me encanta Twitter, tengo que admitir que no he visto ese familiar azul en la página principal de Twitter en un buen rato. ¿Por qué? ya que si bien Twitter es increíble, sólo lo puedo aprovechar plenamente mediante el uso de una gama de herramientas de Twitter.

He escrito varias entradas de blog en Socialable sobre algunas de mis herramientas favoritas de Twitter y más he utilizado, pero pensé que sería una buena idea crear una serie de 101 de los principales medios de comunicación sociales y las herramientas de blogging. Así que aquí está el primero de la serie - y tenía sentido empezar con Twitter ya que es mi medios de comunicación social como "arma de elección" y genera más del 50% del tráfico de Socialable.

Can Twitter replace traditional professional development? | HechingerEd Blog

Can Twitter replace traditional professional development? | HechingerEd Blog | Twitter for Teachers | Scoop.it

Summary by Carnegie Perspectives

 

"Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities. Or, at least, that’s what a group of Internet-savvy educators who convened in New York City this week are hoping."
