EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

This week in the wrap … dig deep into Digital Literacy with NMC's new report, learn how Midlands Technical College set up an affordable glass light board for teachers to record lectures with, read about the essential place that the (often maligned) private, for profit college sector has in our communities, explore the challenges that excessive, ineffective homework result in for our students, and more!

Excellent report on #DigitalLiteracy in #HigherEd. Thx @BryanAlexander, et al. via NMC!
