  1. @iEducator @InnovativeEdu far to small a sample to base any conclusions on. Wallwisher could provide same results without distractions:-)

    • @JohnAHobson @iEducator Don’t luv that sample either, but doesn’t mean social media haven’t had tremendous ed benefits.

    • @JohnAHobson @iEducator More important is that teachers are empowered, not restrained, from choosing the most effective tools for their work
