Announcing the ‘Great Use of Ed Tech’ Story Contest


Share your education technology story and have it featured here!

This week I am announcing a contest with the goal of soliciting readers' stories about uses of Internet and instructional technologies in education, to be shared and discussed here, and one of these stories will be selected to be featured in an upcoming full length post.

I will review all submissions, with a focus on how effectively students were engaged and learning outcomes were improved, and select one of these stories for a much closer look. I will interview the person who shared that story, and feature their Great Use of Ed Tech! story here on EmergingEdTech.

Do you have or know of a great example of how Internet or instructional technologies were used in the classroom, or as part of the instructional process outside of the classroom? Did the use of this technology engage students and improve learning outcomes? Please click here to tell me your story and submit it for consideration.

Note that this doesn't have to be about some fancy, sophisticated Ed Tech application. I'm simply looking for impactful uses of Ed Tech that show how thoughtful instructors can leverage these tools to engage students and faciliate the educational process.  

If you think someone you know may want to share their story, please forward this to them. I will keep the contest open for entries through mid-March.

I really look forward to hearing about readers' great applications of today's educational technologies. In addition to the ‘grand prize' of a feature story here on EmergingEdTech, I will also share elements of some of the other interesting stories that are submitted. Thanks!

Please stop back early next week as we continue our series on “Learning about Lecture Capture“.


  1. I use CPS Pulse clickers every day. Using clickers, I have added a new twist to exams. When students approach my desk to hand in a test, I check the feedback page in the software. I take the exam and highlight and problems done incorrectly. I return the test and suggest they check those problems again. In addition to improving grades, students learn the value of checking their work.
