Top 10 Education Tweets of the School Year So Far – Fall 2015

The top 10 education tweets of the 2015 school year so far include lots of sketchtnotes. Sketchnotes! Educators love them.  SAMR, growth mindset, new tools, blogging, and back to school were hot topics for my PLN. How encouraging it is to see educators taking the little time we have to reflect, learn, and challenge one another to be more.

A big shout out to uber sketchnoter  Sylvia Duckworth! She has graphics in 7 of the 10 top Tweets! She is so gracious and helpful (as well as talented.)

[callout]How were the top education tweets selected?  The Buffer app weights popularity using retweets, favorites and click throughs. When you look at Twitter, you don't see “clickthroughs” but that is a measure of how many people click the link or interact with the graphic. (Think of it as helpfulness, I blogged about it when I analyzed the tweets for last year.[/callout]

Vicki, you graphics are FABULOUS… so eye-catching. I just recently started designing graphics, but have a huge learning curve ahead of me. :-)

Personally, I love the Back to School Cartoon the best. Maybe that’s a bit juvenile of me, but I don’t care. Lol…thanks for sharing.
