For educators who use it well, Twitter has become an indispensable tool for research, professional development, and connecting with other educators. In this 5-module course, Jennifer Gonzalez takes you through 21 videos that show you step-by-step how to set up an account, follow other Twitter users, share your thoughts and the content you find interesting, find and consume content, communicate with other users, and use Twitter to enhance your classroom instruction.
When you're done, you'll have a clear understanding of how Twitter works and better yet, how it can work for you.
