Great Scottish ‘Digital Education’ Twitter Accounts to Follow
Twitter is a professional learning network like no other. Since coming onto twitter to share and gain ideas, I have seen a huge improvement in my own pedagogy, as I am continually inspired by educators. Teaching is no longer a ‘closed-door’ profession. It is one where you can collaborate globally to get the best possible experiences for your learners. The below accounts are ones that either inspire me on a daily basis, or those that inspire others. As the list could be infinite, I am only noting Scottish teachers and schools that tweet mostly about Digital Learning.
Get following and get inspired!
To recommend a Scottish school/educator that inspires you with their Digital Learning tweets, please send me a tweet with their Twitter handle, and a sentence or two about why they inspire you.
I am not responsible for content on accounts that I have recommended.
