Inspiring, informative, useful, or just plain fun tweets posted on Twitter over this past week … collected here to share with our blog readers.

EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

So much to delve into in this week’s Tweet Wrap … is Google becoming the “operating system” for K-12 in the US?, spend some time in the world of Famous Explorers with PBS, consider pros and cons of how technology can impact young learners, learn how data collection can be used to improve STEM learning, get more up to speed on Infographics as an instructional tool, and more. I also share two articles I wrote for University Business that consider the teaching and technology outlook as we head into 2016 (one at the Higher Ed level and one focused on K-12).
