Top Ed-Tech Trends: What's Changed from 2011 to 2012? - by Audrey Watters

Top Ed-Tech Trends: What's Changed from 2011 to 2012? - by Audrey Watters | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

by AUDREY WATTERS:

I’ll string out the posts that cover these over the next 6 weeks — and not just because it’s time for the obligatory-end-of-year-wrap-up-crap posts that we bloggers churn out throughout the month of December. I find the reflection is useful (although time-consuming), and it’s a good process for me to go through all the news and all my writing to assess what’s innovative and what’s hype and what's changed and why."
