#IBBio & #MYPSci on Twitter

Twitter has become my favourite tool for getting and sharing resources for IB Biology (#IBBio) and MYP Science (#MYPSci). Follow the hashtags to get brainier by the day. Better still – tweet out your own links to the news and articles you find that connect to the courses. Others can benefit from your learning, and they might get featured in the #IBSciWeekly ‘magazine’.

What to do: 

  1. Read, like a boss. If you come across really useful links, videos, articles or resources that connect to your #IBBio or #MYPSci class, tweet them out. Many services and sites have Twitter buttons. 
  2. If the link is really long, use a link shortener like is.gd. Better still, customise the URL to make it descriptive.
  3. Post it: don’t forget the hashtag (#IBBio or #MYPSci) and keep it appropriate. Remember your audience.

Some examples after the jump.

  1. “What Doctors Won’t Do,” from homeopathy to unnecessary tests & operations. Some interesting insights. gu.com/p/3d4mt #IBBio
  2. Neanderthal Baby Idea Floated By Harvard Geneticist Sparks Ethics Debate Over Cloning huff.to/10pWqwy via @HuffPostScience #ibbio
  3. Just spent an interesting afternoon moderating internal assessment labs with a colleague – a very useful & thoughtful process. #IBBio #IBDP
