Here are some of my favorite Twitter resources that are particularly helpful for educators, tutors and others in the training profession:
Twittonary.com – Twitter Dictionary that provides explanations about Twitter-related word.
Twitter Handbook for Teachers – An 18-page, free downloadable handbook for teachers who are new to Twitter.
9 Twitter Styles: Which One Is Yours? – A lighthearted look at different styles of Tweeting.
10 Steps to Kick Start Your Twitter Network – Practical tips to grow your network in a meaningful way.
How to hide Twitter #hashtag chats from your followers – I really enjoyed this one. While I Tweet regularly about topics relating to my work, I also occasionally indulge in a little #DrWho chat, but honestly, most of my professional colleagues don’t share my love of the man who travels through space and time in the TARDIS. This is a great way not to bombard them with my little indulgence.
How Twitter will revolutionise academic research and teaching – An insightful article about how Twitter is changing how we view research and teaching.
Why Teachers Should Join Twitter… What I Have Learned as a Newbie – Insights from a new teacher Tweeter. This is a great resource for educators who still aren’t sure what Twitter is for and why it can be useful to them.
