InnovativeEdu Eyes Interactive Reading/Writing in This Edition of Edtech Tweets of the Week

Posted in Classroom strategies, EdTech Tweets of the Week, Impact on Education, twitter by Mark Barnes on February 26, 2010

Here we are for Round Two of the Tweets of the Week, something that I hope becomes one of your favorite attractions.

We had a nice start last week, and thanks to a great suggestion, there are no retweets this time. Remember, I welcome your suggestions for this weekly feature. As always, my humble commentary is next to each Tweet in parentheses.
