NOTE: I usually only post this Digest once each week. However, there’s a lot going on, so this is the second edition within a few days.
Five 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.
