"The past five years have seen a tremendous boom in education technology ('ed-tech') startups that are pushing the boundaries of online and hybrid content delivery and learning experiences.
Unsurprisingly, investments in education technology have more than quadrupled from the time I founded my first edtech startup in 1998. The result has been the emergence of a new teaching model, one that shifts content delivery beyond the walls of the classroom."

Teaching Teachers to Tweet-Part 1

Teaching Teachers to Tweet-Part 1 | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

It's Connected Educator month here in the United States, which has me thinking about how we get more educators connected to one another. There are a number of sources of inspiration for Connected Educator month, but one important one is the National Education Technology Plan. The National Ed Tech Plan was written by an outstanding team of researchers including Chris Dede, Barry Fishman, David Rose and about a dozen others. The plan has a specific section on helping educators in "Connecting to Content, Expertise, and Activities Through Online Communities," with the this recommendation:

 

3.2 Leverage social networking technologies and platforms to create communities of practice that provide career-long personal learning opportunities for educators within and across schools, preservice preparation and in-service educational institutions, and professional organizations.


And sure enough, the U.S. Department of Ed is a co-sponsor of Connected Educator month. It's actually really great to see the DOE taking the ideas from the National Ed Tech Plan and bringing them to life.

The Real Revolution Is Openness, Clay Shirky Tells Tech Leadersl

The Real Revolution Is Openness, Clay Shirky Tells Tech Leadersl | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Mr. Shirky took that message to a group of higher-education-technology leaders who have been buffeted by a rapidly evolving ed-tech landscape. Mr. Shirky, in a keynote speech kicking off this year’s Educause conference, explored how technology was changing everything, from research to publishing to studying.

How we educate everyone, from kids to adults, is going to change.  I think Mr. Shirky nailed it that openess is the revolutionary part of that change.

lowering friction reduces costs, creates more opportunity. apply this to social good as a horizontal methodology, applied to the sharing economy. creates resilience, abundance of flexible resources in reserve for transitions and shocks.

"Now that we are well into summer, thoughts turn towards the next school year. For many teachers, fall may bring a classroom full of new devices. While this is an exciting prospect, it could also be a paralyzing endeavor, particularly with the question: "Where do I begin?""

A wish list for education technology | GigaOM Ed Tech News

A wish list for education technology | GigaOM Ed Tech News | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Given that I’ve been writing about technology in education for some time, I’ve come to think an awful lot about how kids these days can have it so good. Graphing calculators that actually make math beautiful? Digital notecards that can figure out my biggest knowledge gaps? Easy access to information, people and tools that cater to my interests — whether that’s music, programming or stop motion animation? Count me in.

 

This week in particular, at the SXSWedu ed tech conference in Austin, I happily geeked out in panels and conversations about data science, makerspaces, online learning and other movements angling to remake education. But, impressed as I was, I still found myself looking for more conversation and answers to questions about a few themes.

 

Much like the SXSW Interactive conference that’s just getting underway, SXSWedu is a choose-your-own adventure experience — there’s another option around every corner and you’re always wondering what you missed. It’s possible other participants got their fill on the following topics, but here’s a wish list of what I hope to hear more about in ed tech — in the year to come and in Austin in 2014.

"Yet all sorts of chasms remain between the realms of education and technology, between teachers and technologists. If we're to bridge that (and recognize that there may well be places where we can't, where missions and methods are irreconcilable) we should probably start by learning a bit more about one another -- a little bit more about the education and the technology components, as well as the business and politics, of ed-tech."
