20+ #EdTech Lovers Worth Following On Twitter

Let’s assume, just for a moment, that you’re relatively normal – in your digital habits at least (no, not those ones, they’re weird). The chances are, therefore, that you have two routes to the things that interest you – either you seek them out (probably on Google) or they find you, usually through social media.

So if social media delivers to your feed the sort of EdTech content you want to read, watch, stare at and listen to, then it’ll be because you follow the right people. If you find that others seem to be ahead of you with brilliant new ideas about digital learning, with sparkling suggestions and wit and whimsy of the best kind, it’s perhaps because you aren’t following the right people on social platforms. So as a starter, here’s some of the best education technology people and organisations to follow on Twitter. Start with these and feel your EdTech savvy shoot through the roof…

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!
