Educational Technology blogger Audrey Watters recently completed a review of 2012 in her blog Hack EducationIn 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:
