by Kelly Walsh on June 7, 2014

Share

This week’s collection of inspiring, informative, useful, or just plain fun tweets about education and instructional technology articles, resources, etc.

(Originally posted on Twitter by @EmergingEdTech over this past week … collected here to share with our blog readers).


Well … this is the biggest Tweet Wrap ever, I’m pretty sure! There was so much good content I came across this week from all over the place. Great tools and more from favorites like Richard Byrne at FreeTech4Teachers, Terry Heick at TeachThought, and our friend Jackie Gerstein, a few articles on the Maker Movement in education, great flipped teaching and learning content, and much more.

Enjoy!
