This week … it’s easier than you think to learn a bit about coding and to see if it has a place in your classroom. Familiar with FOMO, phubbing, and telepressure? No? Check out these other tech terms with a Digital Dictionary for the New Year. Explore formative assessment for teachers, benefits of inquiry based learning, a new book about “Moonshots for Education” and blended learning, what makes a “smart course” smart, and more, more, more.

So this one is a little off topic (i.e. not edtech), but … working in a career focused college myself, I get excited by stories of college students who innovate new business ideas while pursing their degrees! Hopefully these classic success stories inspire teachers to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit in their students! – KW

This week in the wrap … sink your teeth into what personalized learning really means, explore a dozen great tools that one teacher found to be incredibly useful (I for one want to learn more about Recap, the first tool shared in that post), and as promised in my article earlier this week, we’re looking more closely at security and privacy and to that end we share an article exploring what you we be doing to protect ourselves (good tips here to pass along to students as well, depending on their age). And that’s just the first three pieces of content here! There’s a lot more here to check out … enjoy. #edtech

This week we start with a great piece from Jackie Gerstein expressing the imperative of hands-on learning, we share the launch of the new MAD about Mattering app development challenge, and we explore letting students be masters of their own learning with a piece from EdSurge. We also take a look at a variety of other goings-on in the world of education and technology. #edtech
