What Will The Ed Tech Revolution Look Like?

What Will The Ed Tech Revolution Look Like? | GHS library | Scoop.it

  During the past 40 years, accounting for inflation, we have nearly tripled the amount of money we spend per student in public K-12 education. It was roughly $4,000 in 1971, and last year amounted to $11,000 per student. Over that same period time, our students’ math and verbal test scores have remained unchanged. I am no Warren Buffett, but I can comfortably say to you that that is a lousy return on investment.  Co. Exist. Co.Create article on changes coming to the school system.

Hi David, Thank you for taking time to pass by and share your thoughts. I'm afraid, however, I don't quite understand what posts you are referring to. I am certain that educators will know which tool to use according to their context.

Create Interactive Stories With New Four Dimensional Storytelling Tool: Meograph

Create Interactive Stories With New Four Dimensional Storytelling Tool: Meograph | GHS library | Scoop.it

From official website:

"Meograph helps easily create, watch, and share interactive stories. Our first product combines maps, timeline, links, and multimedia to tell stories in context of where and when.

 

Viewers get a new form of media that they can watch in two minutes or explore for an hour. Sharing is easy: the two most viral types of media are videos and infographics ... Meograph is both."

 

 

From review by Mashable:

"Founder Misha Leybovich invisions Meograph to be a great product for journalists, educators and people looking to share travel stories.

 

The tool uses Google Earth and a timeline interface to show where and when events in a story unfolded.

 

You can now create your own 4D story, by adding events, links, photos and video. You can then embed your Meograph creation on any site or social network.

 

As of launch, you can only create Meograph stories using Google Chrome, though you can view a finished product in any browser..."
