20 Twitter Hashtags for Teachers

 *UPDATED 8/1/12: 20+ Twitter Hashtags for Teachers

There are a lot of different educational hashtags and many have set days of the week and set times where educators, parents, and whoever else wants to can log in and chat about a predetermined topic.  Even if you miss a chat or forget about it, many hashtags have accompanying websites that archive the text of their chats so you can always go back and check anything you missed or review something you might have forgot.

Twenty hashtags related to education are listed below, along with their description and set chat times. Click on the listed hastags to be taken to their respective websites.  If they do not have an organized website, then clicking on the link will take you to their twitter feed.

To follow the chats you can use the search feature in twitter, or there are other sites that make following a chat easier.  TweetChat, for instance, has straightforward format that allows you to tweet, retweet, and reply while still tracking the chat.

If you know of any other hashtags I should include on this list, let me know in the comments section.
