Twitter tips for teachers

If you aren't familiar with Twitter it might seem like a bit of a minefield but it can be a really great tool for teachers and headteachers alike. Our marketing and social media executive, Kelly, shares her top Twitter tips.

Twitter tips for teachers:

  • Make connections 

Twitter can be a great place to build relationships with other teaching professionals and to find helpful resources.

  • Join in

Don't be afraid to get involved in conversations and share your ideas. Twitter is a networking platform by design so get to it!

  • Use hashtags 

Hashtags are your friends - use them! They help your content to be found. We've given you some examples of hashtags that you can use below.

  • Consider using a scheduling tool

It can be tough to get into the habit of tweeting so you may want to use a tool like Buffer or Hootsuite to schedule posts.
