Twitter was introduced to me as an educational tool this past summer during one of my grad courses as a way of connecting with other educators. As I get more familiar with this tool, I have started to create a list of hashtags (#) that I like to use when Tweeting. I have included some of my top hashtags used as well as some other subject specific hashtags. Here are some hashtags to consider using and following:
