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 … a fun project where students create a “chat bot” (an interactive graphic ‘character' you can embed on any web site) – it's much easier than you might imagine! We've got a few videos showing some cool emerging tech like awesome transparent 3D displays and a language translating earpiece, as well as some new and updated tech, like the Google Pixel phone and Camtasia 9. Explore sketchnoting, Twitter tips, and iOS utilities for the classroom. And there's plenty more to explore in this week's Wrap!
