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 … consider how podcasting can build skills for students, consider a free antivirus app to increase your security (too many don’t pay enough attention to this until their personal information and security is violated … be proactive!), if you’re using Chromebooks in your classroom there’s a new podcast focused on that, check out the fun, customizable “maker” card game Jackie Gerstein shares on TeachThought.com, and for anyone in the midwestern US (or anyone willing to travel further), there’s a very affordable flipped and blended learning conference coming your way in June. Plus more to explore in this week’s Tweet Wrap!
