Twitter is a powerful academic resource because it gives the opportunity to bring together educators in a collaborative manner. When used to ask questions, get new ideas, and push thinking, educators can grow their professional learning network beyond just the teachers on their teams and within their school or district. Of course, these collaborative teams at your school site will always be crucial to the success of your students – the on site people at your school have an in depth understanding of the needs of the students in your community! With the addition of using social media to share and seek out new ideas, teachers can take their learning beyond their in-person connections.

Organizing Your Tweets

Going through your Twitter feed can be a daunting task if you are looking for something in particular. The website (also an app), Tweetdeck is a convenient way to separate hashtags and people you follow into organized columns.
