Three years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech:

Why Do Students in Personalized Learning Programs Feel Less Positive About School? is from Ed Tech Strategies. This is why I think “personalized learning” needs to include tech AND non-tech components. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Understanding “Personalized Learning”

Personalized Learning: Modest Gains, Big Challenges, RAND Study Finds is from Ed Week. I’m adding it to the same list.

I thought this was an interesting concept: “Highbrow is an email subscription service that brings bite-sized courses straight to your inbox every morning. All courses are 10 days long (so you don’t get bored) and are broken down into 5-minute lessons to make sure you can read them with your morning coffee.”

Google launches a new Backup & Sync desktop app for uploading files and photos to the cloud is a TechCrunch post. I had no idea that Google offered this kind of service that would back up your files to Google Docs. I’ve been using Dropbox (and Mozy) for years. What advantages or disadvantages do you see to using Google’s service? I’m adding this info to The Best Ways To Back-Up Your Computer & Online Work.

Free Wi-Fi Doesn’t Mean Safe Wi-Fi, And Neither Does Having the Password is from NBC News. I’m adding it to The Best Advice On Protecting Our Digital Info.
