Connected Educators: Top 45 Teachers on Twitter

The feedback from teachers has been incredible to our top 10 twitter accounts for teachers. We would like to continue to provide great resources for teachers and educators, so we are creating a blog series of “Perfect Twitter Accounts for Educators.”

The only  requirement is that the account receive a perfect score of 100 / 100 from tweet grader.

For each account we have included the twitter name, the twitter profile, twitter followers, and the perfect twitter grade. We hope you find them helpful and would love your feedback.

We will be adding additional accounts in the future as we come across them.

We hope you have found this list helpful. We hope to add more to help teachers expand and improve the quality of their PLN. As we find more 100% twitter accounts for educators, we will add them to our list.

    I love the list, it is great to see that I am following and learning from many of the educators on the list.
    Aside from ISTE or EDUCON it would be great to have a large number of these educators in one room or participating in one forum.

  2. Some great new additions to the list who I am now following! Thanks for extending the overall number so I don’t get bumped off! :)
