This week’s collection of inspiring, informative, useful, or just plain fun tweets about education and instructional technology articles, resources, etc.

(Originally posted on Twitter by @EmergingEdTech over this past week … collected here to share with our blog readers).


This week's Wrap includes … resources for using YouTube as an instructional aid more effectively, Google drawing templates, ebooks full of lesson ideas for the iPad equipped classroom, a few resources reflecting on the “Hour of Code”, a fun tool for creating “playing” or “trading” cards for historical or fictional characters, and more. It starts with a review of a book that I definitely want to read!
