Edtech

A group where educators can learn and identify which Educational Technology tools are appropriate for them. I'm hoping to simplify this process for educators and am open to any feedback (organization, specific sites, beta vs ready, etc etc.)

Have people seen TeacherZone - it's free and has thousands of math video lessons. All are 3-5 minutes long - perfect for sharing with kids and parents. They seem to have videos for all math topics for K-12.

Check it out at http://teacher.tenmarks.com.

I am investigating how to best educate each student to a level of learning that exceeds her or his aptitude and how to achieve that goal for all students. I believe ICT has a key role to play in attaining this goal.

Hello - I don't know if anyone is interested in tech and higher/adult education applications, but I just started a group here and hope I can find some people to join for some discussion! The group has the same name as the topic :) Hope to see some of you there if appropriate.
