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 in the wrap … John Spencer asks “What can Schools Learn from Minecraft?” in a brief video; have you tried an “App Lesson” yet? (there's one right there at the top of the list); the 2017 Horizon Report is out – essential reading for those in higher ed with a focus on tech and teaching (and pretty relevant to those working at HS level too!); a MOOC offering focused on designing blended learning courses (starts tomorrow!); and we wrap up the wrap with an image that says so much … this has gotten a lot of mileage but it is so worth re-sharing: the difference between simply using tech and putting it to meaningful uses that lead to outcomes (from Bill Ferriter). Enjoy!
