Today's Newsletter: The Best Edtech Weekend Reading

I was able to catch up on some recent bookmark-worthy articles. Meghan Murphy in Slate breaks down the problems with outdated professional development: “One-time, workshop-style sessions just haven’t inspired the bulk of teachers to adopt technology. Many are interested, but some are also intimidated by the devices, and need role models and coaching.” The Hechinger Report looks at the Technology for Education Consortium, a new non-profit organization whose mission is to bring transparency, efficiency, and collaboration to K-12 schools engaged in evaluating and purchasing edtech products and services. And U.S. News profiles some schools that embrace, rather than ban, Snapchat. —Kevin Hogan, Content Director
