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!
