Part II: Twitter
Our previous blog post mentioned a few ways teachers use Instagram in their classrooms. After all, photo sharing is always a great way to enhance learning, which explains Instagram’s appeal. Even so, teachers may want more features.
Enter Twitter. Not only can Twitter incorporate photos, it allows users to post links to articles or blogs and participate in live chats with like-minded professionals.
Like Instagram, Twitter uses hashtags to funnel certain tweets into varied news feeds. Both platforms also require the @username feature.
So, just what is Twitter, and why do educators use it?
