Need Resources? Use Twitter!
Even if you don't have an account, Twitter can be a treasure trove of resources for classroom teachers. Simply by going to https://twitter.com/search-home, you can search for resources and ideas.
One way to tailor your search is through the use of a hashtag (#). Many groups and chats are organized in Twitter by hashtags. Jerry Blumengarten (@cybraryman1) has a very comprehensive list of the educational hashtags that exist on Twitter, which can be found here. Simply choose the hashtag that applies to you (for example, #scichat), type it in on the Twitter search page, and Twitter will find all of the tweets related to that topic. You have the option to look at the Top tweets, which would be the tweets that have the most shares (re-tweets) and likes (favorites), or you can view All tweets that pertain to your search topic. Tweets generally have links that will lead you to the new resources you are looking for.
