In Education, there are many outlets to find resources. You can simply google and find just about any information. Although now, we are innovating the way we find information. Social media has become an outlet to educate ourselves, grow and make connections.
Over the last few months working as PikMyKid’s social media intern, I have learned about the power of connections in every field. I have also learned that social media is a great platform to build these networks. I wanted to share a few accounts I found extremely beneficial to the Education community. Some are very popular, and some have only a few thousand followers but amazing content.
