Twitter, as a popular and dynamic social platform, could be effectively utilized by educators to enrich and diversify the teaching experience. The “Hashtag” is like a dynamic magnifier that filters and orders the massive amount of data that is populating the web.
The teacher can create a hashtag related to the topic or subject that is being taught. Through that hashtag, the students of that class will be discussing, sharing, collaborating and exploring, with ease, the different local and global viewpoints regarding that subject.
Additionally, the teacher can embed the tweets, with that hashtag, within their learning virtual environment page, as a dynamic reference and an ongoing discussion.
