Twitter Hashtags for Education

08/02/2012

Recently I posted about Twitter for Personal Learning and about Tips and Tools for Tweeters. I mentioned hashtags as one way to follow your interests on Twitter.

Educational HashtagsThe A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags and Lisa Nielsen’s Advice from the Twitter Hashtag Queen – … are valuable sources of information about hashtags that categorize educational topics.

This Google calendar contains a schedule (timezone: MST) of teacher chats that are happening regularly on Twitter.

There are also local communities of teachers collaborating on Twitter, like #edtechbc, which is gathering BC teachers interested in technology.

Hashtags generated for conferences or specific events form communities of people tweeting their thoughts, questions or new insights while attending, like #TCEA2012, the hashtag for the Texas Computer Education Association conference just in progress.
