Inspiring, informative, useful, or just plain fun tweets posted on Twitter over this past week … collected here to share with our blog readers.

EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

This week … sign up to participate in one of Bryan Alexanders' upcoming Future Trend in Technology and Education Shindig events, where he speaks with education and technology experts like Audrey Watters and Perry Samson. I'm not sure if Bryan will extend this beyond September 22nd, so I'd be sure to check one out (even for a short time) on 15th or 22nd. In addition to the great conversation, the Shindig platform is worth seeing, it allows participants to go “up on stage” to ask questions and to “mingle” with each other at any time during the event. Among our other tweets …. consider Skype (or a similar platform) for a virtual field trip, explore 30 Apps to inspire creativity, consider having your students create a video (or other multimedia presentation) instead of doing a traditional ‘book report'. And there's much, much more to read and explore!
