Inspiring, informative, useful, or just plain fun tweets posted on Twitter over this past week … collected here to share with our blog readers.
This week in the Wrap, a couple of fun YouTube channels from teachers … one about History and another about Science (mostly Biology), plus a great intro vid from a first year 4th grade teacher. We've got a couple pieces on emerging technology in general – one from the Wall Street Journal and another post on Medium that takes a positive look at the impact tech can have on the years to come. How about an amazing pen that writes in ink that conducts electricity (could be pretty awesome for applicable science, math, or engineering courses)! Explore new functionality for educators from Google and Microsoft. Also, we're looking for educators who have used Google Expeditions in their classrooms … if that's you, we hope you'll reach out so we can chat a little about your experience. And as always, there's more to explore! Enjoy!
