Heading in Digital Directions
If you're tech-savvy and always on the cutting edge of the latest technology advances for schools and districts, or if you know you need to learn more about everything from virtual schools to online professional development for teachers, take some time to check out Education Week's new publication Digital Directions. (Full disclosure here: I wrote several of the stories.) The publication is a great collection of information on the latest advancements in technology, and features stories about the ways math and science teachers are using high-tech gadgets and gizmos to reach out to students; methods for making online testing work in your school; and the latest on what to look for in virtual classes for students.
If you want even more on the subject, keep your eyes open for information on the Education Week Web site about a chat with the experts on the topics raised in Digital Directions scheduled for Thursday of this week.
