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 … we start with a great new “CIO Minute” video from EDUCAUSE – this one focused on the need for higher ed institutions to get ahead of the curve on figuring out how to become aggregators of credentials, not just purveyors of them (thanks to Joseph Moreau, Chief Technology Office for the Foothill-DeAnza Community College District); remember Google Glass? despite its withdrawal from the consumer market, they've kept the dream alive by partnering with industry; TeachThought offers a nice acronym to help encourage digital citizenship; a superintendent is banning homework in favor of reading; I re-share on old post about making a 3D holographic display with a few pieces of plastic and your smart phone (very cool); and we close with a fascinating look at some highly likely possibilities for how tech will transform aspects of our lives in the coming decade+.
