Follow These 30 Twitter Users To Learn About Global Education

global education series edudemic

Part of the beauty of having the internet in our pants (as Twitter CEO Dick Costolo so aptly said) is that getting in touch with people, staying in touch with them, and getting whatever information we want when we want it is pretty easy.

So if you want to learn more about what’s happening in the education arena globally, Twitter is a pretty great place to start. So we went on a twitterhunt the other day and put together a (not nearly exhaustive) list of Twitter users who have a global education focus. Some tweet a lot about things happening in the global education arena, and others tweet about a little bit of everything. You can also search the hashtag #globaled to interact with users who are chatting about education.

These folks are listed in no particular order. And as I mentioned above, this list is by no means exhaustive. If we’ve left off someone (or someones!) that you think belongs on this list, please feel free to add in the person’s Twitter username in the comments.
