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).Twitter-worldThis week the wrap includes a fun Kid President Video (there’s a bunch of these on the ‘Tube … great inspiration for kids), recognizing non-curricular activities with digital badges, why good teachers are key to the flipped classroom, a few pieces focused on the need to increase physical activity during kids’ school days to enable better learning (veering from edtech there, but it's important!), a school on the cutting edge of educational thinking, published results supporting effectiveness of flipped learning, and more!
