Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through (and learned from) Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog. Now and then, in order to make it a bit easier for me, I may try to break it up into mid-month and end-of-month lists. I’m trying that for the first time now.
I’ve already shared in earlier posts this month several new resources I found on Twitter — and where I gave credit to those from whom I learned about them. Those are not included again in this post.
Here are my picks for March’s Best Tweets — Part One (not listed in any order):
The Big Idea — it’s bad education policy by Diane Ravitch, Los Angeles Times
Video infographic “How To Feed The World”
The problem(s) with the Common Core standards, Washington Post
Why a Salad Costs More Than a Big Mac — Infographic
