One goal at the Classroom of the Future Foundation is to provide teachers with free resources to help implement innovation in their classrooms. Here’s a list of 6 resources that are some of our favorites for keeping up with educational technology news and trends:
1. Edudemic (edudemic.com)
Easily one of our favorite sources of ed-tech news, Edudemic consistently will provide you with reviews, lists, news and great insights on educational trends.
2. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning (educatorstechnology.com)
We love this site for its frequent lists of educational apps, tools, websites, and products. In addition, they provide quality product recommendations, how-to tutorials, and links to helpful resources.
3. MindShift blog (blogs.kqed.org/mindshift)
Launched as a partnership between NPR and KQED in northern California, this valuable blog explores the future of learning, technology trends, innovations in education, groundbreaking research, and more.
4. Free Technology for Teachers (freetech4teachers.com)
Former teacher Richard Byrnes now dedicates his time sharing information about free resources that teachers can use in their classrooms. It’s an award-winning blog with exceptional articles, recommendations, how-to articles, and more.
5. Ed-Tech: Focus on K-12 (edtechmagazine.com/k12)
This site explores technology and education issues that IT leaders and educators face when they’re evaluating and implementing a solution. Although it’s produced by CDW, a technology vendor, they focus on providing helpful ed-tech information and not pushing products.
