EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

This week I start the wrap with a quote from Steven W. Anderson, who was our Keynote speaker at TLIPAD 2015, where he gave a fun, motivating talk on Friday morning. The conference was a blast, and as always, it was great to meet so many inspired educators!

We also have a video to which so many adjectives could be applied (disappointing, disturbing, and ridiculous, to name a few): a short clip showing teachers parroting back a PD trainer's words in a session offered to Chicago Public Schools … this is a great demonstration of how NOT to do PD (thanks to Steven for sharing this in his talk). And, as always, there are plenty of other tools, resources, and insights in this week's wrap!

“The best #making is when students use what they make to solve a problem” @web20classroom (Steven W. Anderson)

Is this the worst #teacher PD ever?
