Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, March 22, 4:07 AM

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, September 16, 2013 9:46 AM

This is one of the first resources to actively use digital tools to upgrade the minutes before instruction starts.  In my professional experience this would be very useful.  I think this is a new area that can be developed further to build in opportunities for students to use technology to deepen their learning.  What do you think?  Would you use this new resource?

Done similar things with Padlet.

The 60-Second Guide To Texting In The Classroom | Edudemic | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
