Two Awesome Infographics

I've been really digging deep this weekend with Google+ communities and have found SO much awesome information that I am glued to my screen reading and scrolling and reading and scrolling.

The first one is this EdTech Cheat Sheet, which really breaks down the plethora of terminology out there in regards to educational technology. For those of you who aren't "up" on all this stuff, it may help you feel more in the know.

When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
