Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good overview of the announcements made at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Philadelphia, which is just wrapping up. ISTE is a schools-based organization mostly centred in the U.S. Some of the more interesting announcements (quoted):

  • Samsung and McGraw-Hill announced “Classroom in a Box,” a collection of hardware, software and services geared at K-12 schools.
  • Software company Follett announced Lightbox, a collection of tools and resources that function like e-books, but with quizzes, read-aloud support
  • updates to the iTunes U store - now features a “Free Books by Educators” section, and a “Real-World Learning” section
