Using Twitter in the Classroom and Beyond

Twitter can be a useful tool in the Teach Ag! Classroom. This is a short guide on how to begin using Twitter in the agriculture classroom.

If you would like to increase your use of Twitter in the classroom and as a tool to promote your program, here is some information to help you start. This blog post provides background information on how Twitter works - I especially recommend the "Mom, This is How Twitter Works" read.

The AgChat Foundation has a list of  hashtags to help explore concepts and expand your networking capabilities for the classroom.  In addition, Twitter chats are constantly being held each week.  Here is a list to get started:

#AgChat

#Agedu

#TeachAg

#SAEVisits

#AskAg

#AskUSDA

#HayTalk

#FoodChat

#AgChatOz (AgChat Australia)

#womenagchat

Here is a link to a master list of Twitter Chats across the world.
