#FOAMed Review 11th Edition

Michael Macias

Welcome to the eleventh edition of the #FOAMed Review! The idea of the FOAMed 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. Check out our indexing section #FOAMexplore which allows you to view previous #FOAMed review by edition or by selecting from CORD curriculum categories.
