Lots of very interesting comments, the trends gated by acceptance, and use within the educational community and the " permission" or purchases within the schools.

I am also surprised 15% have no interests in using whiteboards though, not all schools have the chance or "permission" as already mentioned to use it or implement it

It is always inspiring to find resources in order to assess both if a learning tool is useful and also our students outcomes with that tool.

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing | 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Both high-tech innovations for learning and the inability of many schoolchildren to write well have been major talking points in educational circles for quite some time, but oddly enough, one may offer a solution to helping remedy the other.

 

There are a variety of tech tools and methods out there for teaching writing that can make the process easier and more fun for both teachers and students. While not every high-tech way of teaching writing will work for every class or every student, there’s enough variety that there’s bound to be something for everyone.

 

Here are a few tech-focused ways to help students learn grammar, essay-writing, and, most importantly, why good writing is so important to their futures.

Pai has created individual learning plans for each of his students, which includes time with him, with other kids, and with online games. And though his students have shown exponential growth in achievement, Pai is frustrated that his successful tactics haven’t been acknowledged or applied outside his class.

“I couldn’t be more stunned by the apathy,” he says in this video, which also documents other schools and educators’ attempts to change the traditional school paradigm
