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:
#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
#langchat – Tweets about learning and teaching languages
#mfl – Tweets about modern foreign languages
