Education and Tech News Today 12.18.2013

In today's roundup, a series of post- Arapahoe shooting text messages between parent and child are going viral, Mashable's cool technology 2013,  and the best WordPress tutorial for Yoast, the SEO superpower.

I love the funny conversations on Twitter that happen like this awesome tweet from Heather Woodland…

Yes, for many of us, it is the storm before the calm. This is how I feel about the end of the semester.

As I count this year's gifts, you're among them. Thank you for adding me to your PLN.
