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.
Here are this week’s choices:
Is Screen Time Really Bad for Kids? is from The NY Times.
Terrapin lets you highlight text and create a link that goes directly to it – and include a comment.

If they can make modifications so it can be used more widely, then I’ll add it to The Best Applications For Annotating Websites.
ZenKit lets you create collaborative Wikis. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools For Collaboration — NOT In Real Time.
The Machines Are Learning, and So Are the Students is from The NY Times. Here’s the tweet I sent out about it:
