Not so much a blog, as newsletter, not a single podcast but a rich collection of video podcasts, the eSchools News (www.eschoolnews.com) is a rich collection of information delivered regularly to subscribers’ email inboxes.
Trying to develop your Disciplined Mind? Then visit the Best Practices link in the Home tab. Do you want to challenge your Synthesizing Mind? Then perhaps the “Special Reports” tab will have details of major issues and new technologies that need to be considered. Are you ready to test your Creating Mind? Then visit the Resource Center. Concerned that students are demonstrating their Respectful Minds and that their data is secure? The Security tab is for you. Are the effects of digital learning principled? What ethical issues are in the tech news? The SAFE Center is there too. A quick browse of topics has something for every teacher, administrator, and technology department, to assist students’ success and ensure ethical use of technology.
Beginning a new job yesterday that assists teachers and schools in their goals of technology integration, many issues have already been raised and discussed with my new team. eSchool News has information relating to many of them. When addressing these issues, it will be important to have the widest possible knowledge base when making technology choices, when faced with technology challenges, and when designing curriculum and technology integration.
The place to keep current is a free subscription to eSchools News.
