Our weekly picks are all over the place - in a good way. We promise. We've got some heavy-hitting stuff on personalized learning from the Hechinger Report. (And if you're into that sort of thing, can't recommend their blended learning newsletter enough.) We also enjoyed a nice read from Kids Discover on creating content that students will want to share.
Also, famous person Carly Rae Jepsen recorded a very viral song in 2012. This week, EdSurge compares the popularity of Call Me Maybe, and subsequent variations, to the innovator's mindset. Read it. It's good.
And on that note: call us crazy - but here are our weekly picks - read 'em, maybe. (That was terrible. We're sorry. Stories below.)
