Nine 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:
Biteable raises $7 million Series A for its template-based online video builder is from TechCrunch. I’ve previously posted a few times about Biteable, and put it on a couple of “Best” lists for making videos and infographics.
Do Children Really Need to Learn to Code? is from The NY Times. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles Highlighting Why We Need To Be Very Careful Around Ed Tech.
The stimulus bill includes a “historic” provision to expand broadband internet access is from Vox. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Schools Providing Home Computers & Internet Access To Students.
NPR’s Student Podcast Challenge Opens For Middle And High School Students is from NPR. You might be interested in The Best Resources For Teacher & Student Podcasting.
Billion-Dollar Book Companies Are Ripping Off Public Schools is from The New Republic.
