Like I mention in my previous post here http://bit.ly/prgessentials about my reflections after Intel Teach Training from Pargue, Ollie Bray, our brilliant trainer invite the participants to join also Social Media in Learning and Education Project managed by EUN
"Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved.
Yet as with anything related to technology, new tools are hitting the market constantly and older ones rising to prominence, broadening their scope, or just adding new features that make them better matches for education, which can make it hard to keep up with the newest and most useful tools even for the most tech-savvy teachers."

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students. It’s all about the history of education technology and could be used to educate just about anyone on how far we’ve come in a short period of time. We did a more in-depth look at the history of education technology about a year ago but this infographic is a lot more… fun.
Anyway, the below infographic from CTU can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF here (so you can fire up that color printer). Enjoy the walk down memory lane!
Engaging students is not an easy task for teachers and educators, but Web 2.0 provides lots of resources that they can use to improve learning and teaching in and out the classrooms. Students are easily attracted by technology and are already advanced internet and social network users, an advantage we cannot leave behind nor ignore. A while ago I already listed a few tools that are really easy and helpful for teachers and students, but since collaboration, web 2.0 and social media are so successful for interaction, working, learning and communication, we should take a good look again to the many new tools, software and apps we can use to empower engagement and improve communication with students.
