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 lead off with a piece about Competency Based Education – nothing new for regular EmergingEdTech readers, but still an innovation too few in education and the world at large understand the implications of. CBE may be the single most meaningful change that has come to higher education in decades (and not just for its own significant value in displacing seat-time with skills-attainment, but also as a foundation upon which stackable credentials can come into their own as another radical change to higher ed). We also explore lessons learned in the light-board enabled classroom, dig into a security awareness campaign schools can undertake in 2018, read about a plan to teach kids the digital skills they need, clear up some common misconceptions about flipped learning, and much more. Dig in!
