Twitter is a powerful educational social networking website that has a huge potential for teachers professional development. Twitter is also ideal as a PLN where you get to connect with other educators from all around the globe and exchange teaching and learning materials with them. Building a PLN, however, requires making acquaintances with similar like-minded teachers and also developing your list of followers; but once you have such a solid PLN problems of maintaining it and staying updated with what others tweet become a tricky challenge. I have curated for you some powerful tools to help you benefit the maximum from the PLN you create on Twitter. Check them out below.
This is one of my favorite web tools that I check regularly. Paper.li enables you to publish newspapers based on topics you like.
