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 … some of you know already how passionate I am about the homework problem that exists in far too many classes and last week Vicki Davis talked about this issue with Matt Miller, author of “Ditch That Homework”, in her weekly podcast. Check out how combining physical and digital constructs can combine the old and the new to be a win-win for gamification and our students. I've shared one of my own articles (written for the Flipped Learning Network) because I am passionate about the characteristics of excellence we often see in educators who have chosen to flip their classrooms. Explore a “Video Encyclopedia” that provides lots of short videos to introduce many, many topics … and much more! And Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there!
