Center for Digital Education & Converge: research in education technology for K-12 and higher education

'20 to Watch' Leaders Share Ed Tech Resources on Twitter

on March 19, 2013

Every year since 2006, the National School Boards Association has named 20 education technology leaders to watch — and this year is no exception. 

All 20 honorees are recognized for inspiring colleagues to incorporate innovative technology solutions that contribute to high-quality learning environments and more efficient school district operations. And to help them do this, many connect and collaborate on Twitter.

In fact, all but a few of the 2012-13 school year winners are active on the social networking site — and of the 140 total honorees since the program's inception, nearly half are active on Twitter. 

Now you, too, can connect with the more than 60 active "20 to Watch" awards program winners through our new Twenty to Watch list.
