EdTech Links of the Week - 12-5-22

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.

And as always, please let me know of any resources that you recommend. I would love to learn from you!

This week I have 5 new resources from around the Internet and 3 new resources from my blog.

You can watch the recorded live stream where I demonstrate the resources and go into more detail on each one.

Future live streams will usually be on Monday evenings at 7pm EST. The next schedule live stream in Monday, December 12, 2022 at 7pm EST. You can always get the exact time, as well as links to the live streams for YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn at:
