Teaching with Twitter [Infographic]
It's no secret that teachers are turning to social media to inform their own professional development. This movement – often referred to as DIY PD (do-it-yourself professional development) – is empowering educators to utlize technology resources, digital media and community building to shape their own learning. However, the DIY movement isn't exclusive to teachers — classrooms around the world are turning to Twitter and social platforms to expand student learning.
"Today's high school students might be the first generation to master the art of posting respectful, deeply considered ideas in real time—and in 140 characters," writes Amanda Wynter in her article Bringing Twitter into the Classroom. Additionally, research shows that teaching social media literacy is essential to student success and college & career readiness.
