EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

I took the last week off to chill with my extended family at the beach, so this week's Tweet Wrap is smaller than most (but I dipped heavily into posts scheduled for today to flesh things out!). Nevertheless, plenty of cool things here to check out, like a great site focused on integrating AR & VR in education, several pieces on evolving approaches to grades and outcomes in K-12 and higher ed, watch a mobile 3D printer that can print a building (no, not a teaching topic per se, but we know 3D printing is opening up a lot of fun possibilities and projects in our schools), and more!

Great site focused on Virtual and Augmented Reality in education
