Staying Current on Technology in Education

Staying current in the technology education world is not an easy task. Things are changing rapidly and the students are learning new things each day on their own. I have noticed a huge trend in the computer science world with a push for more computer coding. The event that was just held world-wide called Hour of Code shed light on the need for up and coming computer programmers. The NMC Horizon Report 2015 K-12 report states some key trends; one huge one being that students need to shift from a consumer to a creator. Another trend is the rise of STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). Other current trends include Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD), MarkerSpace, 3-D printing, digital badges, and wearable technologies.

Another great gain in education is the technology to have your students’ blog to a wide community outreach. The students are able to have a broader audience when they use blogging platforms.
