Welcome to the fifth edition of the #FOAM Review! The idea of the FOAM review is to give you a digestible selection of reliable content from the online EM/CC world that you can fit into your busy weekly schedule. Each review will include highlights from the highest yield blog, podcast, video and web sources around. Over a year's span we will be sure to include topics from all core EM content areas...even the ones that may not be the coolest. Look out for the #FOAM review curriculum and indexing page in the next few weeks as we continue to update the website!
