EdTech Links of the Week - 12-12-22

Each week I keep an eye out for the latest edtech resources through blogs, social media, podcasts, videos, user groups, and more. I then try to reshare these resources in many ways.

One way I share these is here on the blog in these "EdTech Links of the Week" posts. See below to explore the latest batch of resources, and be sure to share with others who may benefit.

🤖 An AI Wrote this Blog Post

  • ChatGPT is an AI chat tool that has been trained to assist with a wide range of tasks that involve natural language understanding and generation. 
  • This can include answering questions, providing definitions or explanations, summarizing text,  providing suggestions or advice, writing on any topic and in any style, and much more.
