Abstract

At a time when teachers’ stress is on the rise and about one in five new teachers leaves the profession within five years of teaching (Gray, Taie, & Rear, 2015), one way to support teachers may be through the social media website Twitter This paper explores the limited research surrounding the utilization of Twitter in teacher education programs, highlighting benefits such as opportunities for resource sharing, professional development, and emotional support The author of this paper also provides a sample Twitter guide for instructors in teacher education programs based on the findings of previous studies
