Twitter As An Educational Tool
By Rachel L. West

Hope everyone’s holiday season is off to a great start. I wanted to share an article with you that was written by a recent BSW graduate Justin Vest on Professor Laurel Hitchcock’s blog about the use of Twitter as an educational tool.
Twitter can be about celebrities and national or global trends, but I find its value in connecting users with educational content. I was first introduced to Twitter as an educational tool in Spring 2013 while taking Dr. Laurel Hitchcock’s class on social work with groups, communities, and organizations.
You can read the article here on Professor Hitchcock’s blog Teaching Social Work. Congratulations Justin on graduating and I wish you lots of luck next year when you begin working on your MSW at the University of Alabama.
