About ‘EmergingEdTech’…

Today’s blog post will be different from my other blog posts as I’m briefly going to write about a useful website for (student) teachers. I came across this website when I was searching for tools that stimulate/create interactive classroom collaboration. This website is really a personal weblog and is called ‘EmergingEdTech‘ (http://www.emergingedtech.com/). EmergingEdTech was founded by Kelly Walsh, teacher and CIO at The College of Westchester in White Plains, New York. In *a blog post on EmergingEdTech Walsh writes: “EmergingEdTech is a personal weblog I run where I interact with a community of other educators and technologist, explore the use of technology as an instructional tool and enabler, and share the learning journey.”

On Walsh’s blog you can find lots of different post regarding a lot of different topics. A few of those topics:

  • Adaptive Learning Technologies
  • Assessment
  • Collaboration & Brainstorming
  • Comics and Cartooning
  • Education Technology Success Stories
  • Educational Games & Gamification
  • Facebook (classroom and instructional uses)
  • Free Tools & Resources
  • Future of Education Technology
  • Interactive White Boards
  • iPads, Tablets, iPhones and Smartphones
  • Mobile Learning Resources
  • Presentation Tools
  • PowerPoint
  • Polls & Surveys
  • Podcasting, Vodcasting & Video Hosting
  • Picture & Image Editing

Additionally, there’s a lot of information on the flipped classroom along with tool-torial videos…

I personally really like this blog; it’s structured, neat and thus clear. There are links on the site to EmergingEdTech’s Youtube channel, Facebook profile, Twitter page etc.. The only pitfall is the advertising that seems to appear everywhere. Nevertheless, the blog posts contain a lot of interesting facts and useful/practical tips for (student) teachers. You should really check this site out!
