Twitter hashtags for language learning and literacy

Today is Twitter’s 5th birthday. To celebrate, I’m sharing some of my favorite hash tags for literacy and language learning.

For the uninitiated a hash tag is a way of organizing tweets into subjects or conversation topics. Users can then search for a particular topic, using a hash tag. You start with the symbol “#”, followed by the topic you are interested in. There are obvious ones and then there are those that are less obvious, though often interesting.

Here are a few of my favorite ones for literacy and language learning:

Literacy hashtags

#adulted – Tweets about adult education

#ece – Tweets on early childhood education

#famlit – Tweets about family literacy

#literacy – General Tweets on literacy

#reading – Self-explanatory

Language learning / Language teaching hashtags

#flteach – Tweets about teaching foreign languages

#elt, #eltchat, #ESL, #TESL, #TESOL, #EFL – Tweets about learning and teaching English as a second or foreign language

#langchat – Tweets about learning and teaching languages

#mfl – Tweets about modern foreign languages
