EdTech Weekly Digest - 2 (February 2014)


EdTech Weekly Digest - 2 (December 2013)

I will give a quick walk through of the topics that were covered over the last one week that might catch your interest, by briefly touching few of those articles and discussing a few of them in detail. I find myself researching and learning so many 

new things when I visit EdTechReview for the weekly digest. This week I will be touching the following topics in this digest.

How Can Students Demonstrate their Knowledge in a Fun Way?

Demonstrating what they’ve learned helps students develop their independence as learners. Online learning gives many opportunities to students to demonstrate their knowledge. Earlier, students could only demonstrate their knowledge and comprehension through limited ways such as quizzes, essays, tests and other formative practice. In order to create a more effective learning experience, new and engaging ways for students to demonstrate knowledge should be adopted.

Miss Humblebee’s Academy: An Online Kindergarten Preparatory Program

To help children to compete on an international level academically, parents and educators need to start educating them early. The school readiness gap needs to be closed to ensure that children have the chance to kindergarten ready for success. Miss Humblebee’s Academy helps close the educational gap to set the bar higher, simplify concepts and establish a sound foundation for learning.

How to Connect your Classroom to the World?

Learning that is restricted to the four walls of a classroom cannot prove to be very effective. There is a need to connect classrooms to the world outside to realize the true potential of learning and make it effective. Classrooms should be connected to the world so that students can share ideas about what they are learning, take their ideas to a higher order of thinking and learn about the world outside their classroom.

One of the best feature of this new layout of edtechreview.in is its new menu layout. So do check new section's like RESOURCES, NEEDS, VOICES, FOR, CONTRIBUTE..
