A Report from the Floor at the BETT Show

Editor’s Note: This guest post was written by Geeta Raj, the founder of The Global Sleepover. You can follow her on Twitter @globalsleepover and email her at graj@globalsleepover.com The 2014 BETT Show (British Educational Training and Technology) took place this past week in the massive ExCeL Center (Exhibition Centre London). It’s impossible to get through all the exhibitions, presenters, seminars and one-on-one networking in one day — and far harder still to capture all of that in a blog post! Unique among global conferences, attendee […]

The First Crack of EdTech 2.0: The EdTech Hype Bubble of 2011-2013

Kno’s consumer-focused model, seeking to sell what is ultimately a feature for an entrenched oligarchical of suppliers, was doomed from the beginning — just ask that 2000 era startup that was charging for digitized book content before Google made available for free all the books it was copying at the University of Michigan.

Shannen Doherty, Dancing Babies, and Why All Education Lead Gen Sucks

One unexpected happy outcome of declining enrollments at for-profit schools and their related focus on improved student academic measures has been the dramatic decrease in the broader industry’s god-awful ads.

Educelerate: Chicago’s Central Role in EdTech Innovation

In response to Tom Vander Ark’s recent posting on New York as an EdTech Hotspot (second only to the Bay Area), I wanted to counter that, in fact, New York can only rank as high as the third “most prolific EdTech hotpot on the planet.”  For over a generation now, Chicago has served as the epicenter of for-profit, technology-enabled education entrepreneurship and investment. While we tend to be humble out here in “Flyover land,” our memories run long and we […]

EduNationCast #023: Stop With the Buzz Words!

We discuss whether the term Education Technology does the movement of education reform a disservice. Is technology still “scary” or is technology ubiquitous? Should technology be an inviting term at this point? Why is it that many teachers still shy away from tech? The Roundtable this week dissects these questions.

EdCeptional Show #19: What’s on the Horizon?

This episode of the EdCeptional show starts off with each crew member sharing a great blog that they had read recently.  They then jump right into a discussion about the Horizon Report 2011 K12 Edition and what implications it might have for special education.  LeapFrog’s LeapPad, the kid-friendly tablet, was the other hot topic this week.   Show Host: Anne Truger Show contributors:  Patrick Black, Jeremy Brown & Deb Truskey Subscribe to The EdCeptional Podcast on iTunes Subscribe to the […]
