Welcome back! Tomorrow night we'll have our weekly podcast, so there won't be a regular Roundup. Then I'm off for 4 days on fall break so there won't be any new posts until next Tuesday... In the meantime, let's start today with Teach Thought and an excellent and thought-provoking article, "13 Likely Realities for the Future of Learning." The write-up covers technology, school-design, and a whole lot more.
Next up, in case you're worried you missed any EdTech stories this summer, EdTech Magazine has you covered. Their new post, "5 EdTech Stories you Might Have Missed This Summer," is a collection of their biggest educational technology articles from the summer. Topics include expanding BYOD policies, bringing real-world experiences to the classroom using technology, reimagining classrooms with personalized instruction, and more!
Free Tech for Teachers has five new resources from today:
Holly Clark at Edudemic has a great new post on how to "Help Students with Comprehension Through Collaborative Reading." Clark discusses using technology to help students while reading to organize their notes and highlights, get easy access to definitions, find help with pronunciation, use visual cues for comprehension, and a ton of other excellent ideas.
Educational Technology has four new articles to check out:
Over at the Ed Tech Review, they raise the question, "Using Technology in Education: Does it Improve Anything?" The article provides a short background on technology in education and goes on to outline some of the major tools, uses, and benefits that teachers are discovering for edtech. The post covers flipping classes, digital teacher collaboration, online learning, and more!
Finally, EdReach has three new podcasts from today:
And that's all the the Roundup today! We'll end with a special offer from Learnpad (a classroom iPad alternative, it's a tablet designed specifically for classrooms). If you request information from their site you'll be entered to win for a classroom starter set. Pretty great deal. We'll be back tomorrow with the Mid-Coast Tech Fest podcast, until then, thanks for reading and have a great evening!
Round it up!
