Emerging technology for education is always an exciting topic. In this podcast, I quickly review some interesting hardware and software that’s truly changing the modern classroom and the role of the teacher. There are tons of tools at our disposal, and it’s in our best interests, as well as the best interests of our students, to use these devices and technologies to help enhance our teaching. Below are some links about the different types of devices mentioned in the show:Electronic Whiteboards:
Education World’s article on Electronic Whiteboards
Shamble’s collection of articles on Whiteboards

Wireless Tablets:
Interwrite Schoolpad (this is the one I use, couldn’t find any others that did the same things)
Interwrite Recording Examples – Some examples of movies recorded in the software. Audio is terrible, The demonstrator had the mic too close to their mouth.

Survey Devices:

James Madison University offers their analysis on CRS
