EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

This week we have several pieces on Project Based Learning, which we're big fans of … PBL provides hand-on active learning that can really let students take ownership of their learning and it is an excellent formative assessment opportunity. Check out TimelinesTV for some great short video lessons for historical events. Explore a dilemma for modern times – the pros and cons of digital vs paper text books. We also have several stories focused on specific ways that schools are embracing digital learning to improve outcomes for their students, and much more!
