Six 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, including some Web 2.0 apps.
You might also want to explore The 56 Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2018 and THE BEST WEB 2.0 APPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATION IN 2019 – PART ONE.
Here are this week’s choices:
Tweeig is an app that lets you repost tweets to Instagram.
Safe Notes lets you annotate PDF, as well as letting you do lots of other things to them. It doesn’t let you convert them to Word documents, but I’m still adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Ways To Convert PDF & Word Documents.
Lotta Tools also lets you do a…”lotta” of things to a PDF.
What is personalized learning and why is it so controversial? 5 questions answered is from The Conversation. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Understanding “Personalized Learning”

I’m adding this tweet to The Best Research Available On The Use Of Technology In Schools:
Cross-sectional analyses of PISA and NAEP data suggest little or no overall relationship between technology use and student achievement: https://t.co/q9NfBy3Ssy. We need to stop asking “Does technology help?” and start asking “When does technology help?”
