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 … a couple interesting pieces on Virtual Reality in education (VR is deep into the 'emerging' stage in education), also a lot of focus on cyber security (I know this isn't a fun topic, and it is more “tech ed” than “ed tech”, but I am passionate about raising awareness, so I hope you don't mind! 🙂 ), a reminder about the vital importance of soft skills (which reminds me – this would make a good series of fresh posts, purposely connecting these soft skills to the ways in which technology is increasingly being used as a tool associated with soft skills like writing, oral comm, creativity, and collaboration), a rich piece on tech and higher ed from thought leaders via EDUCAUSE, and more!
