It’s sometimes tempting to dismiss Twitter as a place for Justin Bieber to share what he had for breakfast. It can, though, be so much more than that. Some of you may already be using Twitter to connect with colleagues, organisations and professionals in your field, to support your CPD and stay up-to-date with the hot topics in your areas of interest. Have you ever thought about using it with your students, though? There are all sorts of opportunities to effectively use Twitter and related tools in your teaching. Take a look at the notes from my recent session, Twitter for Student Engagement, to find out more about using Tweet walls, hashtags, polling tools and much more to enhance your students’ learning. The notes include lots of useful links to find out how teachers are exploiting Twitter as well as some tips on managing your Twitter account and things to be aware of.
