Here are this week’s choices:

Glose raises $3.4 million for its collaborative reading app is from TechCrunch. Glose is a “social reading” site that has game elements. It has an education arm that lets teachers created virtual classrooms with up to forty students for free, including a fair number of class books in the public domain (you have to pay for others). I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress.

Google Lens arrives in iOS search app is from TechCrunch. It’s very interesting, and I’m trying to figure out how it can be used with ELLs and others for learning….

Reading The Game: Walden is from NPR.

Introduction to Using Google Expeditions in Your Classroom is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources On Virtual Reality In Education.

An Easy Way to Download Google Drive Files in One Folder is also from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning How To Use Google Docs/Google Drive.

And here’s yet another winner from Richard: How to Use Flipgrid – From Sign-up to Video Responses.
