Twitter for educators? I understand your misconception as I believed it too. I had always been under the impress that Twitter was for celebrities’ and their fans. Who really cared about what Justin Bieber was doing? But after talking with a fellow educator, he inspired me to at least give it a try and I am so glad I did; Twitter has changed my teaching life. Below are some of the resources and articles that I have found helpful.

Twitter Basics:
# = a hashtag- You can make up a hashtag for anything or anyone. Hashtags are how people can follow a certain topic. To learn more about hashtags check out Twitter's Help Center.

Lists- You can create lists or follow lists by 'subscribing' to lists already created. Your lists can be anything you want to keep track of. For example, I have a list of all the teachers that work in my district so I can see what they are doing and keep track of them easier. To learn more about lists check out Twitter's Help Center.

Favorites: On way of using the favorites button is a way to 'save' an article you want to read and you don't have time. Your favorites will then be listed on your Twitter page for yourself and others. To learn more about lists check out Twitter's Help Center.
