Read our advisors’ picks for the best of 2014. Who likes Google Inbox? Who likes Evernote? Who prefers Chomebooks over iPads? You’ll want to know what these innovative educators have added to the toolbox.
This past fall, Tech & Learning Live (formerly Tech Forum) hosted two days of professional learning: one in New York and one in Texas. Check out some highlights of these conversations. You can find more discussions online at www.livestream.com/techlearning and in person in Long Beach (January 30), Atlanta (March 13), Boston (May 1), and Chicago (May 7).
T&L congratulates the winners of our 32nd annual Awards of Excellence program. Honored software, hardware, network, and Web products include innovative applications that break new ground as well as those that added significant enhancements to proven education tools. A panel of more than 30 educators, who tested more than 150 entries, chose the winners. The opportunities for using technology in the classroom have never been better, but making purchasing decisions has never been more difficult. We hope that the hard work our judges have performed this year adds insight to our readers’ search for the best solutions.
