Twitter: Connected Educators: Curating with Tweetdeck

How to get connected to learners and learning using Twitter and other tools.

Why Tweetdeck?

"Raw" Twitter can be a challenging time-suck. TweetDeck is a curation tool that allows you to add columns for feeds based on account, hashtags (topics), events and more.

It gives you the power to choose what (and who) has your attention, and means that when you dip in, the information you really want to see is organised properly.

Copy-paste some of these full strings into a search bar on TweetDeck to start curating quickly. 

  • #MyWAB OR @WAB_Live OR #UniquelyWAB OR #FLoW21
  • #EdTech OR #EdChat OR #ISEDChat 


Try building your own from hashtags and subjects you follow.
