EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

This week in the wrap we have a couple of articles exploring Professional Development – one looks at the hesitancy and fear that some educators encounter as we dabble in technology and the other explores personalizing PD with varying models like EdCamp and coaching. You can enter to win a Chromebook Classroom! Discovery Education launches their Young Scientist Challenge for Grades 5 to 8. A lot of folks were pleased to the recognition of the need for “learning engineers” as Facebook seeks to hire some. Adapting curriculum so ALL students can do Project Based Learning … and much more to explore!
