*The Tech Edvocate is pleased to produce its “Best of the Best” resource lists. These lists provide our readers with rankings for edtech related blogs, twitter accounts, influencers, products, etc. These lists are meant to be fluid, and for that reason, they are regularly updated to provide up to the moment information.*
Edtech has worked its way into almost every classroom. Trying to catch up (and keep up) with all of the latest trends and information can seem like an impossible task, but it is one that most in the education field know they cannot omit from their curriculums and regular lessons. Teachers of students in grades K through 12 are in particularly difficult when it comes to keeping up to date because there is not enough time in the day to make sure that the tech is both worthwhile and in the budget.
Fortunately, there is plenty of information on Twitter than can help you at least stay current. All you have to do is check back on a periodic basis to see what
- Each feed must be relevant, at least some of the time. Several of them do touch on other areas as well as K to 12 specific learning, but there is enough valuable information to help you understand what is available and when it will help.
