It’s hard to know exactly which technology will catch on in the education sector and when, but the following list showcases some of the emerging new technologies, software, and platforms available. Many of these have entered the classroom and are changing the way students and teachers learn permanently.
Teachers, as much as students, need help and support with their lesson plans just need help with studying for exams. Allowing teachers to submit a 2-minute lesson plan strategy, idea, or resource using video, documents, Powerpoint, etc. and share it with other instructors, LessonCast is just another way to offer networking opportunities and a general pool of knowledge that globally impacts education in a positive way. A similar network is Teachers Paying Teachers that allows educators to sell their lesson plans to other instructors.
Kid Blog is designed specifically for younger students and provides a safe opportunity for children to start up their own blog connected to the classroom.
Teachers can help students design a blog around a history lesson, a science project, or an entire year’s worth of school progress. The students get the benefit of other students and parents commenting on their work- a great motivation for hesitant writers. Kid Blog makes it easy to keep the child and content secure from the dangers of the Internet.
