The power of edtech is defined by what great teachers can do with the technology. Educators who transform classroom learning experiences are changing how they plan, communicate, provide feedback, and collaborate with their students.

Technology is an immense tool that can transform the way students learn. One of my favourite quotes which demonstrates this comes from Steve Jobs: “What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.“
Great tips for applying Universal Design for Learning principles, with a list of books for further reading at the end. "Here's one good tip" "You’re not going to apply every single [guideline] to every single lesson. It depends on which ones are relevant to your learning goals.” So true. Start small.
Tony Bates: "In my previous post, there were two sessions at the LINC 2013 conference that referred specifically to MIT’s own strategies for technology-enabled learning within MIT. These resulted in my asking the following question towards the end of the conference:
Why is MIT ignoring 25 years of research into online learning and 100 years research into how students learn in its design of online courses? "
It's more complex that 'nerds vs. educators' but sometimes it does feel like the MOOC revolution is driven by the hardware & software with little regard for the hard won and deeply researched lessons learned since the days when online learning was considered the Devil's stepchild.

"Games can serve as a means of not just developing domain-specific knowledge and skills but also identity and values key to professional functioning. The data from games enable understanding how students approach and solve problems, as well as estimating their progress on a learning trajectory."
"It’s difficult to keep students engaged — and awake — when assigning them readings from long and often dull textbooks. Two researchers wanted to change that.
Their creation is zyBooks, a web-based platform that mixes learning activities such as question sets and animations with some written content, largely as a replacement for text. The idea is that professors can use zyBooks instead of traditional textbooks in order to help students engage with the material and perform better."
