With more time to reflect on summer professional development experiences, conferences, and workshops, we've been finding some thoughtful pieces on the future of edtech this week. Lots of stories asking what devices and programs will look like decades from now. (And what do you think? Tell us in the comments or tweet us @Chalkupedu.)
This week we’re also interested in several fine pieces about gamification, Mac tips for teachers, and lessons learned from early Chromebook adopters. Good reads. All worth a Friday click.
