Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2011: The Business of Ed-Tech
Dec 16, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes
Audrey Watters has wrapped up her 'top 10 tech trends of 2011' series. I'm not going to do very much 'year in retrospect' coverage this year (almost none, actually) but I will do this one, at least with links.
- the iPad
- Social media - adoption & crackdown
- Text messaging
- Data (which still means mostly 'standardized testing')
- The digital library
- Khan Academy
- STEM education's Sputnik moment
- The higher education bubble
- Open
- The business of ed tech
Just for the record, I think Audrey Watters is one of the best things to come along in education technology in 2011, her style of journalism sharp and analytic, yet still a fresh change from the constant wingeing and negativity found on so many other sites.
