This week I am announcing a contest with the goal of soliciting readers' stories about uses of Internet and instructional technologies in education, to beÂ shared and discussed here, and one of these storiesÂ 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 oneÂ of these stories for a much closer look.Â I willÂ interview the person who shared that story, and feature their Great Use of Ed Tech!Â story here on EmergingEdTech.
Do you have or know of a great example of how Internet orÂ instructional technologies wereÂ 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 meÂ yourÂ story and submit itÂ for consideration.
Note that this doesn't have to be about some fancy, sophisticatedÂ Ed Tech application.Â I'm simplyÂ looking forÂ impactful uses of Ed Tech thatÂ show how thoughtful instructorsÂ canÂ leverageÂ these tools toÂ engage students and faciliate the educational process.Â Â
If you think someone you know may want to share their story, please forward thisÂ to them. I will keep the contest open for entries throughÂ 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 backÂ early next week as we continue our series on “Learning about Lecture Capture“.
