EdTech Links of the Week - 5-1-23

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.

🎧 Podcast Spotlight: The EDUProtocols Podcast 

I was honored to be on the "The EDUProtocols Podcast" where we talked about my "Tier List" activity, which is a fun and engaging activity that can be used in any grade level or subject area to get students thinking critically, comparing and contrasting, debating, defending their ideas, communicating with others, and seeing other viewpoints.

Listen to the show and be sure to check out the other episodes they have had with so many awesome educators.
