End of the Week Roundup of Top Twitter Posts

Good morning! As part of this Guildway series, we have made a roundup our top Twitter posts for this week. The tools that made it into this week’s list are Google Slides, Google Sites, Edpuzzle, and  Google Classroom. If you are interested in discovering the features of these tools to improve student engagement, organize classroom content, and manage your work life, just click on the link for each blog post below. We also have a weekly blended learning challenge for teachers to further develop their skills. If you would like to join, the second and third challenges are included in this week’s list. For the other challenges, please refer to our previous posts.

We all know that students like to play games. Why don’t we gamify our classroom by adding game elements? This doesn’t mean that students just play games, but the class is the game itself. Students will be taking the role of players. This is not only in the name of fun, but gamifying your classroom will make your students motivated and happy. In order to get an in-depth discussion about this topic, please refer to the blog post in the list below.

Here are this week’s top Twitter posts:
