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's wrap has plenty of tools and tips, as well as the usual assortment of insights into meaningful instructional uses of technology and good teaching in general. Check out the free, collaborative online interactive whiteboard from Limnu, explore a handful of free, quick note-taking tutorials from the folks at Atomic Learning (we use AL at The College of Westchester … we're fans!), get your science on with the “Science Master”, and we have several good pieces from our friends at TeachThought, including a “really, really good” set of classroom rules, and 5 ways to use Pokemon Go to teach critical thinking. Enjoy!
