Today’s Post is Short, Sweet and Filled With New Ed. Tech. Both Beta and +Beyond)
Shout Outs and Reminders
The numbers of teachers on our team is increasing! Special Shout Out of thanks to those like Matt Crosbie and Shawn Storm who took it active initiative on this first mission! By completing the second survey and recruiting more teachers to our team, we can make the ed. tech. world understand our potential to provide them with a new channel for the distribution of technology.
The Goods: Beta Ed. Tech. Seeks Reviewers
- Story Lines
- Word Kung Fu Both of these beta technologies are being developed by Root-1. I’m meeting with Root-1 team member Vibhu Mittal tomorrow to learn more about these and to let him know that he’s got a varsity squad of educators ready to share their insights.
Don’t know much about this one but it sure looks sweet!
If anyone feels like creating a review of the beta technologies below PLEASE DO! I would love to see what some of your ideas are! If you want any ideas about creating a review, you can check out the ones I did over the summer. Be creative, make it your own, and most importantly provide these guys with ACTIONABLE feedback-feedback that tells them what action they need to take to make it optimize your practice and improve student outcomes. ***Let the team know what you think! Email your reviews to firstname.lastname@example.org***
More Free Ed. Tech.! FYI This stuff is WAY beyond Beta!
+1. Today, I had the pleasure of meeting with Learn Boost’s Co-Founder Rafael Corrales. Learn Boost is what happens when a beta technology listens actively and empatheticly to teachers AND gets it 100% right. This isn’t a program, its a masterpiece.
+Looking for a way to make an elegant visual? Who isn’t? Cacoo has stencils, a history feature that lets you undo and redo, collaboration features, and the ability to export your diagrams into PDF, PNG, and other formats. Great for classrooms! And for mapping out your classroom set up. The beauty of this program is something you have to see for yourself.
Like I said, today is short and sweet, but its only because I’ve got another packed day tomorrow, and can’t wait to report back to the team! You guys rock and I can’t wait to see your reviews! Please email them to me at email@example.com.
