New Monthly Feature Offers Hand Picked Videos About The Impactful Use of Technology in Education
This month we launch a new feature – a monthly collection of great videos about the productive use of technology as an aid to teaching and learning! Our first video round up offers a mix of videos discussing technology in education at a high level (the ‘whys and hows’) with videos examining some specific technologies and how they are being, and can be, used. We have a mix of academic levels represented here … hopefully these provide a little something for everyone.

Kids Teaching Kids. Eric Marcos and the Mathtrain.TV story
We learn best from our peers. And yet, our educational system still depends on us learning from people 20-50 years our senior. Not a bad idea, when people older than us know the subject really well. But, what if students can teach other students? Or even better, what if the students can learn in the process of teaching? Eric Marcos has students show up every day after class (for no extra credit!) to make math videos for their fellow students and the rest of the world. See why and how.
