Use Twitter!

Start using Twitter!

To begin with start as a consumer and find a ton of resources to use in your classroom.  Slowly but surely you will get excited about what you find and start to contribute to the vast collection of educational tweets.

Create a Twitter account for school business and share with your students and parents.

Here are a few names to follow to get you started:  @brownron, @raybirks, @edutopia, @classtechtips, @alicekeeler, @justintarte, @ShakeUpLearning, @willrich45, @sirkenrobinson, @googleforedu

You can also use a hash tag search to find tons of relevant information.  #gafe, #ettipad, #edtech are a few I use to find new tools and strategies for technology in the classroom.  

But you can use your subject, topic, curriculum, people, you name it try the hashtag # and it will be there.

Don't be afraid to use it... It's not all movie stars and media, it is my go to for current educational topics.

Here's a good place to get started once you have an account:
