Using Twitter for Professional Development

What is Twitter?

Who do I follow?

What do I do?

  • Use hashtags to focus your tweets or follow a specific topic
  • Cybrary Man's List of Educational Hashtags
  • Participate in Chats on subjects in which you are interested
  • Cybrary Man's List of Educational Twitter Chats
  • Try to post once or twice a day about ideas you have, lessons you've taught, blog posts you've read, or discussions you've had
  • Respond and comment on others' tweets
  • Develop relationships with people with whom you find it beneficial to collaborate. Like any relationship, this may take a little time to develop
  • Don't get discouraged. What if you had stopped going into the faculty room after your first day teaching because you felt out of place?

Are there any tools to help me out?
