Check out this 10 Twitter Tips for Teachers Infographic
Ever wondered what the best Twitter tips for teachers are? Thanks to social media, I found them. I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
Recently, Teacher Toolkit posted an infographic about 10 Twitter Tips for Teachers. He also linked to his in-depth (and excellent) article about the ins and outs of Twitter. You can read that article here. His tips cover the basics of getting started on Twitter. For example, he suggests you have a professional account, separate from any personal accounts you might have. He also gives a brief overview of what being on Twitter might be like and suggests things like ignoring and blocking troll accounts, the three reasons you should use Twitter (content, share, and give/receive), and even tips on who you should and shouldn't follow.You can see those tips and more on the infographic below.
What tips would you include? Which tip is the most useful for you? How do you use Twitter or why haven't you started using it yet?
