Tweet your learning (It’s all about the hashtag)

I have used a few Twitter-templates and exit tickets for students to summarise their learning. This one I made recently for students to write at the start, middle and end of a lesson or series of lessons. They are a great way to show development of learning and student understanding (especially by looking at what they use as a hashtag). You can download it from my TES account here.

twitter starterA great example of a hashtag was used in a recent biology lesson about the menstrual cycle. A student added the hashtag #who_let_the_eggs_out? I thought this was genius. Its amazing what they come up with once they have done this a few times.

I am grateful to Colin Cuthbert (@IST_Physics) for sharing his class set (see picture below). He suggests adding “loves” or “retweets” to good examples.


Please share any of your good examples. I look forward to reading the hashtags!

  1. I did a workshop with a group of S3 students in 2014 – the project was called Positive Wiring and was about the development of the foetus in the womb. I would have tried a series of Positive Wiring related hashtags such as #PositiveWiring, #PW14, etc… someone in the group came up with #HowAreYouWired 🙂 Brilliant!
