Not to brag here or anything, but this is a solid weekly roundup. There's a lot happening in edtech and there's a lot to talk about.

Netflix is dedicating $100 million to education. We're seeing lots of interesting stuff coming out of the Future of Education Technology Conference in Orlando. And we've got this straight-up fascinating read from Education Week on approaching the often-touchy subject of data in K-12 schools. 

And then there's this story from TechCrunch on the way startups are creating opportunities for instructors to provide more one-on-one, personalized attention to students. Specifically, the post covers "online mentorship" and the value - and trade-offs - of online learning programs/platforms/environments.

All links are below. You know how it's done.
