Educational Technology blogger Audrey Watters recently completed a review of 2012 in her blog Hack Education. In a series of ten posts she outlined the Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012. One of these trends The Maker Movement was a resource for our first assignment this semester, and serves as inspiration for our ongoing assignment to host an education arcade for on the last class.
I want you to help me review the other nine ed tech trends identified by Waters and present your perspective on them. One or two of you will be assigned a trend to investigate (look below for your display name from this blog). In your review please be sure to cover the following:
- Summarize the trend identified, what is it?
- Why do you believe this trend was chosen? Give examples in your explanation.
- There are many embedded and linked resources in the description of the trend chose a few to read and give us some description of why they are part of the story.
- Be sure to embed any relavent images and/or videos, also be sure to quote and hyperlink resources.
