Twitter for Educators Beginner's Guide

There are several reasons why you, as a teacher and educator, should be using Twitter. First , it is free , easy to use and have a user friendly interface which allows you to keep updated of the latest about whoever you are following. Second,  Twitter is heavily populated by educators and there is probably no other online social networking platform where you can find such a  huge conglomeration of educators and teachers in one single platform as is the case  in Twitter. Chances are, as Twitter user , you will definitely  meet and make
acquaintances with other fellow teachers from all around the world. This will help you exchange learning and teaching experiences with them, expand your knowledge base and , above all, grow professionally.


I strongly believe in the educational value of Twitter as a tool to help us improve our teaching practices and enrich our learning journey. I have devoted an entire section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning to Twitter in Education. A lot of you have been regularly  following and reading this section  and I am so glad to hear that some of you have their Tweeting experience tremendously improved since they started reading those posts.Feedback such as this  does really make me happy  and encourage me to work harder because at the end of the day what remains is that beautiful feeling one feels knowing that he/she has helped somebody out.

That being said, let me now share with you one of the best guides on the use of Twitter in education. This short guide (  made up of  just 11 neat and well compacted pages ) will walk you step by step through the process of mastering the art of Tweeting. I am pretty sure you will enjoy reading it, and before sharing it with you let me just express my deep gratitude for Amber Coggin for this great work.
