This Luminary Labs article describes projects that were in a contest they had.   They look amazing and awesome, including Smart Sparrow,  which seems to be a learning platform for making online stuff.   It’s free for up to 5 students, too and touts drag and drop for interactivity.   I *think* this is a great way to […]
