Inspiring, informative, useful, or just plain fun tweets posted on Twitter over this past week … collected here to share with our blog readers.

This week in the wrap … we congratulate one of our favorite apps, Socratic, for winning Google Play’s App of the Year for 2017!, FreeTech4Teachers has produced over 400 edtech tutorials, explore how learning science can help us get the most out of edtech, why testing continues to fail our students, taking a look back at Milo the robot kid (saw Milo featured in a news piece recently and this reminded me of this fun post), and plenty more to explore! 
Congrats to Socratic! Google Play’s APP OF THE YEAR for 2017! Wow! Very impressive.
