This simple but effectively explains how teachers can use hashtags in their T&L. Wakeletcom is a great tool for curating hashtags. Here is one I made earlier http://wke.lt/w/s/vdenD
Some might be sceptical on the use of hashtagging in general, especially for teaching and learning use...but give it a try and you'll be pleasantly surprised is my bet! #EdTech
I completely understand the use of hashtags know
Will support learners with correct usage.
Nothing in here I didn't know already, but I can see it being a really great primer for people who aren't quite as digitally confident as I am. This left me thinking about getting back to Instagram!
Good overview of the use of hashtags.
Have never thought of using these as part of any online/digital learning. Makes sense after working through this!
Not sure how useful this would be with my groups.
