Today’s news updates will focus on Hurricane Harvey as well as general education and EdTech news.
Yesterday in our blog we shared this Newsweek story about the impact of Hurricane Harvey. In fact, according to Education Week, more than one million students are impacted. The New York Times shared a great resource for teaching about Hurricane Harvey, which can be found here.
We also have been inspired by schools and others coming together to support Harvey victims. This story from Missouri and this Facebook group we previously mentioned talk about helping to adopt classrooms and helping impacted teachers.
As we shared yesterday as well, some of our colleagues are supporting Save The Children. Learn more here.
Today we also want to share additional updates. Here is a link to a story focused on the top five EdTech trends.
Another topic we continue to hear about is student privacy. Read more here.
