Technology plays a huge role in my high school career. I use my school-issued computer for a large number of assignments, and my teachers utilize a ton of different websites to provide extra resources or as a way to make lessons engaging, creative, and fun. Some of the educators and administration (at West and throughout the entire district) use Twitter to connect with students and the community.

I enjoy following leaders in my school on Twitter, but I’ve also seen or heard of MANY Twitter accounts for education. This is a three-part list of fascinating Twitter accounts for students (or for anybody who is looking for a little learning while scrolling). All accounts are linked for easy access. Happy following!
