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).


Happy New Year Everyone! This week’s wrap includes … defining a ‘taxonomy’ for personalized education, the most shared flipped classroom articles (Edutopia content dominated), fun with Fake Facebook and Fake SMS as great methods for engaging students in history, Epson’s new Moverio (“Google Glass on Steroids”, at a fraction of the price), model rubrics for PBL, a guide to helping students think critically, and more. I also indulged myself at the start of the year by including a few tweets that veer from ‘edtech’ a bit.
