How can Educators use Technology to Improve Learning Outcomes (Today and Tomorrow)?

Hi! My name is Kelly Walsh, and EmergingEdTech is my passion. Welcome.

After 20 years of managing information technology in traditional businesses, in 2008 I had the opportunity to do so in an institution of higher education and I jumped at the chance. I am enthralled by education, driven to be an excellent teacher and help others do the same, and inspired to motivate and help students get a step closer to who they want to be.

I am fascinated by the ways that learning is changing in an era in which technology is changing everything. The more I study it, the more I see that properly implemented and supported instructional technologies and tools can absolutely help to make learning more engaging and more productive for students and teachers alike.

Not only can the marriage of technology and education improve learning outcomes, it is radically advancing availability (delivery and consumption). It’s lowering costs. It is bringing remote learners, teachers, and experts together to teach and learn from each other. It is changing the world.

The nature of these technologies and tools and how they are being incorporated and embraced in teaching is constantly evolving, with new ideas and applications for them emerging every day. I devote many hours to learning about the myriad ways in which technology is enabling and advancing teaching and learning. My learning process comes full cycle when I apply and construct my own knowledge by writing about it. And it’s never better than when I succeed at engaging and having a dialogue with readers like you!

I hope you will come and join the conversation.

Posting Schedule

Each week, I research relevant topics and write articles seeking to provide information, insight, and/or opinion about those topics. We also get some great guest posts from educators, administrators, technologists, and other writers. EmergingEdTech publishes a few articles each week, along with a “Tweet Wrap” post at the end of each week (consolidating most of the Tweets I posted that week about ed tech articles and resources that I think readers might find informative and useful).

Come learn and explore with us, and share your insights with others!
