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 young man from Sweden has created a powerful AI program that can connect to a variety of digital learning content and software and provide an individualized experience that can significantly enhance the effectiveness of learning … check out our first article below to learn about Sana Labs and their Artificial Intelligence “layer application” that could see rapid adoption. Similarly we have a piece that discusses how tech can equalize learning differences. Another article looks at a study showing that grouping students by ability holds back those with lower innate ability levels. A piece about teaching science through dance reminds me of the possibilities for more efficient and fun teaching by combining disciplines (something that is too rare in our schools). And more to explore! Enjoy.
