Top Twitter #hashtags for teachers

Oct 21, 2016


Twitter has become an effective way for teachers to share information and resources as well as connect with like-minded experts in education. If you want to get started on Twitter and you’re looking for some relevant tweets then here are some hashtags to help you get started

#edchat - Used more by teachers in the US, it can be helpful if you are interested in tweeting with educators worldwide but can lead you to teaching sites which are US-specific.

#edteach  – Used by those tweeting about UK education but not as widely used as #ukedchat.

#edtechA wide range of tweets will come up with this search relating to the use of technology in education. One of the more popular subject-specific hashtags used.

#education and #edu  - More relevant for worldwide tweets about education news and information  in general rather than teaching-specific tweets.

#elearning - Throws up lots of tweets about e-learning – teaching-related, school-related and more.

#KS1, #KS2 , #KS3 and #earlyyears  are great hashtags for searching specific tweets about each key stage level and will help narrow down the advice and resources you see in your feed.

#lrnchat – Linked to learning, this hashtag throws up a lot of teaching links but also everything in between, such as learning and self-development as an adult.

#mathchat #scichat #engchatA few hashtags used worldwide which throw up lots of tweets from around the globe. Team it with #ukedchat and you could narrow down tweets from the UK.

#nqtchat, #NQT and #Nqts are relatively popular hashtags for newly qualified teachers , tweeting  about everything from advice to resources.

#School(s) – This can encompasses a wide range of school-related topics but isn’t as widely used for teaching resources –  a great way to find schools and  information on school-based articles.

#Teachertips – A relatively popular hashtags for advice-based articles for teachers.

#TeacherTuesday – Log on every Tuesday and share teacher-related quotes as well as suggesting other educators for fellow tweeters to follow.

#Teaching – A popular hashtag for teachers, but also commonly used for teacher recruitment – so be prepared for job adverts with this search.

#SEN  - Useful for teachers who specialise in SEN. Teamed with additional hashtags such as #teaching will help filter some non-teaching tweets out.

#ukedchat – For those involved in UK education, this hashtag is one of the most popular in the UK and is often used for resources, debates and information.
