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 we have lots of flipped learning related content (I was at FlipCon 2016 last week … it's always fun to be reminded how much those learning about or already immersed in the flipped classroom tend to be interested in learning about ed tech in general!). We also have a good whitepaper looking at the science of learning as it applies specifically to teaching practices, search results to explore to learn about Self and Peer Assessment tools and techniques, a couple articles about Virtual Reality, a look at a successful school that has done away with grades and timetables, and a comparison of Evernote vs. OneNote (with Evernote moving towards a paid model for more than two devices, this is particularly worth considering), and more. Have fun exploring this week's resources!
