EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

This week we've got a packed Wrap with lots of tech and teaching fun! Check out a “groundbreaking new guided curriculum that changes the way … preschool and elementary children develop essential skills” (the first article below); whether it's flipped or blended learning, teachers new to these approaches always want to consider, “What if they don't watch the video?”; speaking of video … check out a new tool for easy video creation: mysimpleshow.com (I have to confess, I just spent $99 to have this new EmergingEdTech ‘explainer' video made, and it looks like I may have been able to do it for free with this easy tool!); did you know that September if “Growth Mindset” month? Explore a set of tech resources to foster this vital mindset for our students; we shared a piece about how Scratch (easy and fun to learn coding) helped a young student with Autism; and how about Howtoons? Comic book artist, an inventor, and a toy designer got together and created tons of comic-style content that teaches kids how to build things, combining instructions with storytelling (here's one fun example: Camera Obscura). Explore and enjoy!
