Twurling around educators' use of Twitter for personalprofessional development
Annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association
The authors tracked 287 Twitter users who self-identified as educators in or closely connected to K-12 classrooms. A data analysis was performed to determine the frequency of visits to 34,820 URL's. Analysis reveals that educators are heavily reading blogs and other sites created by other educators, but are decidedly not visiting URL's related to academic research or educational associations. A full table of frequencies is presented as are suggestions for further research.
