Happy Holidays, edtech family. We're hoping everyone made it to winter break unscathed and you're now enjoying some time away from the classroom.
If the present-unwrapping has left you fatigued and it's edtech you're interested in, fear not, we still have our weekly roundup of edtech reads ready to roll.
We've got an opinion piece from EdSurge by Arne Duncan and Tom Wheeler - do give it a read. Interesting perspective on prepping students for the 21st century. We also included news from the U.S. Departement of Education, as well as a thoughtful writeup on higher ed's year in tech.
All this good stuff below. We'll be back with more good stories in the new year. Looking forward to it.
