A Must See Visual Featuring 7 Effective Ways to Engage on Twitter

Twitter is definitely one of the best social media websites where you can create and grow your personal/professional learning network. Social networking now is one of the essential and uncostly means for teacher professional development. You don't have to wait for those twice-a-year PD sessions from your school district to improve your teaching practice and expand your professional insights, all it takes now is having an account in Twitter ( or other social media platforms like Google Plus) and you will have unrestricted access to the collective wisdom of the masses.

 Of course there are things you need to know and tips you have to use in your tweeting experience in order to tap into the full educational potential of Twitter starting with building your base of followers and choosing the 'right' people to follow to learning about hashtags and using third party tools.

There are also certain rules you need to keep in  mind while using Twitter and below is a wonderful graphic from open forum that features 7 of these rules. I come across  this visual through a tweet by Glen and and want to pass it along.

  2. Not only is Twitter great for our professional learning, but for our students, too. I have several that I learn from during #PBLChat, all from a variety of schools and states. This blog by one of them, @EmmyRyd2016 talks about students creating their own digital footprints. http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2013/11/a-must-see-visual-featuring-7-effective.html?goback=%2Egde_2811_member_5809061984678739972#%21
