iCharger Tutorial: How to Set Up A Twitter Account

Do you think that Twitter is for texting teenagers? Well, think again. One of my largest resources for technology integration in my classroom and now as a technologist is my Twitter feed. Educators are using Twitter as a MAJOR resource for the classroom. Teachers are exchanging ideas and helping each other problem solve everyday on their Twitter feeds. So how do you start? First you need to set up your Twitter account. The iChargers made a video on how to set up your account. Then, you need to find people of interest to "follow" on your feed. Don't worry if it is a slow grow on your feed. If you teach 3rd grade, start with a search for "third grade" in your twitter app--then click "follow" next to the people of interest that match your search. I like to follow great educators that serve as mentors to me. Keene ISD has jumped into the Twitter world with the handle: @KeeneISD and my handle is: @KeeneEDTech. Make sure you start with those follows and go from there!
