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

This week … has your school reached an ed tech plateau? Check out the article at the bottom of this list for some tips on how to “move the needle”. George Couros shares lots of encouraging changes we’ve seen in our schools so far in the first decade and a half of this new millenium. We have a great piece from Ken Bauer on giving students an authentic voice. I’m pretty excited about launching the Flipped Educator Spotlight video series and included a link to that here as well, along with plenty of other info, resources, etc. It’s snowing here in NY as I write this on Saturday … I guess winter has arrived (regardless of the date), and it’ll be Christmas Day when I post the next Wrap! Wow, time flies. It has been another fun year though, with much thanks to all of you for your readership, your comments, and your passion for continuing to learn and grow as educators! – KW
