Teachers Are Doing It for Themselves: Using Social Media for Professional Development and Advocacy
Hardy, Emma Ann
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v56 n2 p265-276 2014
Social media, such as Twitter and blogs, has opened up new possibilities for teachers to communicate. In the face of increasingly centralised policy agendas, social media has created spaces for teachers to talk to each other, share with each other and learn from each other. This article explores how teachers are creating their own spaces by using social media and how social media can support both autonomous professional learning and new forms of activism.
