Best Graduation Advice and Other Edutweets

I’ve been changing up my approach to Edutweets a bit. First, I no longer do them weekly, but instead publish them whenever I have accumulated what seems like a substantive list of resources. Second, I am starting to take more of a “digital curator” approach by organizing the links into headings that align with major categories here on Mission to Learn. In general, my aim is not just to throw up a bunch of links, but to try to provide a reasonably well organized set of resources that help readers in their continuing mission to learn. Given the time of year, the feature for this round of Edutweets is:
