Twitter may seem, in many ways, to be old news. We’ve written too many posts to count about how to employ Twitter in your classroom. Many educators have found that Twitter is a great tool to help increase participation, battle shyness in the classroom, and continue to engage students once they’ve left the classroom. Many of the mainstays of “How To Use Twitter in Education” remain true regardless of whether you’re using Twitter in your classroom or in your personal life – especially the ideas surrounding being a real human being with multifaceted opinions and interests.
But something about the infographic below made my thoughts veer more towards professional development than use in the classroom. Though we usually talk about ideas for using Twitter at school, it can also be a really useful tool for your own professional development. More often than not, teachers in the edtech world relay to us that they’re often the Lone Ranger of edtech in their school, and they find most of their ideas and support in the virtual world. So take a look at the infographic keeping in mind how you might apply these ideas to furthering your own professional knowledge.
