Using Twitter for the first time can be daunting. Glancing over your feed can make it seem like there are a million conversations all going on at the same time, making it hard to follow a single train of thought or distinguish the good information from the bad. At the same time, Twitter has proven to be a valuable way for educators to connect with like-minded individuals across the country.

 

With both these facts equally true, the best thing a teacher new to Twitter can do is find the right hashtags. Hashtags are, of course, the short phrases prefaced by a pound sign that are used to group conversations and similar thoughts or “threads” into one place. For an educator looking to Twitter for professional development,following the right hashtag is essential.

Below, we’ve listed some of the most useful hashtags out there for educators:


#altedchat: Alternative education educators and topics
