Inspiring, informative, useful, or just plain fun tweets posted on Twitter over this past week … collected here to share with our blog readers.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to readers all across the world!
This week in the wrap … 10 graphics provide insight into the challenges we continue to face with education here in the U.S. Props to Katie McNeil for hitting the proverbial nail on the head with the simple yet vital observation that a fundamental goal of education is teaching kids how to learn (yet we somehow manage to frequently overlook this). It was a huge shock to learn that the New Media Consortium was suddenly closing their doors after many years of excellent work – our hearts go out to those who lost the jobs just before the holidays due to financial mismanagement, what a shame! Congrats to John Boyer, yet another Teacher of the Year who was clearly inspired by implementing flipped learning in their classrooms – flip on John!
Thanks again to everyone for another wonderful year of exploring, learning, and sharing!
