One idea I find fascinating is the use of computerized games in education. I’ve been particularly impressed with Khan Academy’s approach, which has had me hooked on math more than once. Here is a very different approach to gamifying learning, from MIT’s Education Arcade (other news: MIT has an Education Arcade!).
So, I created this blog to post links to sites I find interesting, and occasionally my thoughts about them. I’ve recently started working in educational technology again, after many years on hiatus from the field. In the meantime, I’ve tried to keep up with the trends and the Big Ideas in education, many of which focus on the use of technology as a teaching tool. This blog is an attempt to find interesting applications of these ideas. We’ll see how long it lasts!
