More and more educators are using Twitter. The use of Twitter by educators is something I highly support. I think it is becoming an increasingly needed tool for collaboration, sharing of information, and developing our PLN’s (Personal Learning Networks). Our PLN’s are important for learning and gaining more skill and knowledge for success in our professions. I recently wrote a post about this, titled “Why Teachers Should Join Twitter…What I Have Learned as a Twitter Newbie.” If you haven’t read that post, please do so. It has been popular and is becoming a source for sharing with teachers and educators in learning why they should join Twitter and how they can get started.
Today during my daily routine of scrolling LinkedIn and reading articles, I came across this infographic of how scholars are using Twitter. I want to share this because it deals with the subject I have been discussing of why educators should join Twitter, regardless of what type of educator he or she is. This infographic covers the early findings by researchers from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. They studied how Twitter is being used by scholars. Check out this infographic to view the early results of the study. It is interesting. I thought I’d share this because it is related to the subject I have been discussing here on my blog.
