The Big Thing Teachers Have in Common with DJs....



You know the old adage, "a good teacher is a lot like a DJ." No? Haven't heard of that one? Well, Gary Abud makes a strong case in a new TEDx Talk on what educators can learn from DJs. We popped the link and video below. 

In other news, Facebook pioneer Mark Zuckerberg recently devoted $20 million to putting faster internet in schools. Good for you, Mark Zuckerberg. You go, Mark Zuckerberg.

We have that article and quality reads on personalized learning and organized digital students below in our weekly edtech picks. Have a great weekend, everyone.
