EmergingEdTech Teaching Technology Tweet Wrap

This week in the wrap ... the “Global Day of Design” happens this Wednesday, the NY Times is spot-on with their feedback on the fallacy of Cuomo's “free” tuition program (this hits close to home for me, living, teaching and working in NY state), we have a couple pieces related to innovation in education, chemistry teachers should appreciate the Periodic Table of Ted Ed Element Lessons, in Ireland they've launched a genuine Blockchain-powered learning platform (geared towards working professionals), a University Business piece reminds us of the need to help our colleagues steer clear of the ‘cyberbait', and more to explore!

The “Global Day of Design” is coming, May 4 … “A 24-hour design event inspiring students to create, make, and build.”
