Are you a tweeter, churning out worthwhile (or not) tidbits of 140-character news? Are you a lurker, reading other people’s shouts (and whispers)?
Either way, you’ll probably know Twitter can be a great way to follow breaking news in education, science, and all manner of things useful to your teaching. But how to sift through all the tweets and find the ones which mean something to you? Well, try out a few hashtags that make it much easier to find and follow said news!
Got any good hashtags we should be keeping an eye on? Let us know!
Tweeting fingers at the ready, scientists
Happy tweeting everyone!
