Educational Technology

  • GeoGebra is free mathematics software for learning and teaching for all levels. This award-winning software supports geometry, algebra, tables, graphing, statistics and calculus.
  • While the topic of OER (Open Educational Resources) is new for some and not for others, it is moving into mainstream education technology conversations. Achieve.org has some useful tools for evaluating the OERs you might find at OER Commons. If you are interested in learning a little more about this topic, check out the recent article in THE Journal.
  • David Thornburg is an interesting guy to listen to in person. My first exposure was listening to him talk about Campfires in Cyber Space oh so many years ago. It seems like he was talking learner centered education before many. This recent article in THE Journal finds him talking about “disruptive technology.” (See Disrupting Class by Christensen, Horn & Johnson.)
  • Yet another perspective on the Khan Academy and its role in educational reform. My wonder is how do you see Khan Academy relating to TPACK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge)?
