Want to explore some learning technology resources? In our last LET Community meeting, we shared some of our favorites. Here are a few that represent an array of topics.
- Professional, Continuing, and Online Education Update is on Jennifer Bachmann’s daily email digest. It highlights news, research and trends by the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA).
- Cub Kahn suggests Teaching in a Digital Age. It is a new open, online textbook by Tony Bates, a long-time leader in the online learning world. Here are some sample chapters titles: Ch. 7 – Pedagogical Differences between Media, Ch. 8 – Choosing and Using Media in Education, Ch. 9 – Modes of Delivery, Ch. 11 – Ensuring Quality Teaching in a Digital Age.
- eLearning Industry is a site Covie Quick recommends.
Asking me for my one recommendation is like asking me if I’ll take a chocolate or coffee. My response is “Yes please to both.” Here’s a variety that serve different purposes.
- Free Technology for Teachers is a must if you are interested in online learning technology tools. Richard Byrne shares and reviews free resources that teachers can use in the classroom. His short posts often include suggestions of how to incorporate the technologies and how to guides.
- EdSurge is a site I subscribe to and enjoy updates on everything from product reviews for education, to research, to ed tech start ups.
- Audrey Watters writes in many places, including Hack Education. I enjoy her insight, wit and candor in reporting on ed tech.
- Steve Hargadon is also at the top of my list. He is behind many projects such as The Learning Revolution and free online conferences like the Global Education Conference.
If this isn’t enough, check out more of my recommendations at When Tech Met Ed/Blogs, Podasts, Social Networking as PD.
