How can “hashtags” expand my personal learning network?

Twitter continues to serve as an important source for personal learning for many educators. Did you know that you can follow streams of conversations/resources directly related to your favorite topic, content or discipline area on Twitter? Each topic has a specific “hashtag” that allows the user to access what others are sharing. Many useful articles, strategies, and resources are shared daily across the world via this powerful tool.

A comprehensive directory is shared below. (Remember that new hashtags are being added daily!)

Need help getting started with Twitter? Contact any IT staff member or Beth Strike.
