Utilizing Twitter hashtags is a great way for educators to discover new teaching methods, learn about trending topics in pedagogy and raise awareness for their own projects. There’s many great Twitter hashtags available to educators, with focuses ranging from educational reform, to early-childhood education, to transformative learning and so on. Hashtags allow teachers to see new approaches, implementation, learning points and successful (or weak) examples that their peers are sharing. They’re also a great way for teachers to connect with other educators to ask questions or for advice.

Niche educational hashtags focus on specific learning methods

What about teachers who are looking to diversify their teaching approaches through certain tools? For instance, a teacher might be interested in using Minecraft for their upcoming math project. For finding compelling Minecraft ideas, similar to the Milan Urban Design project on Creatubbles, teachers can turn to #gbl, which covers game-based learning. In the same vein, teachers looking to integrate art into their history lessons might turn to #museumed (museum-based learning). Or, elementary school Computer Science teachers could follow #HourOfCode for ideas about innovative activities.
