Trends and Tools

This week is the annual ginormous ISTE conference in Philadelphia (International Society for Technology in Education), and while all the ed-tech people I usually follow are attending, they are publishing a great deal of information from the conference so I feel like I know what's going on without having to actually be there. It's pretty sweet.

We frequently get asked, what are the next big trends in educational technology? Here's one lovely summary from the folks at Edutopia...you might not be ready to encourage your students to play World of Warcraft for Language Arts credit, as is mentioned here, but "gamification" is a big buzz word out there right now as educators look at how to harness the power of games for educational benefit.
