Editor’s Note: Showstoppers

Nothing warms the heart of a geek editor more than a good old-fashioned story on AV. From overhead document projectors and film reels from the days of yore to the 4K displays and production studios of today, audio visual technologies are the bread and butter of edtech. Contributing writer Sascha Zuger does her usual sterling stuff in detailing some really sophisticated initiatives from around the country and even Japan this month (“A New View of AV,”).

We’re also about a year into our working relationship with our new owners at Future Publishing and are beginning to reap the benefits of being part of a global media company. Be sure to dig into some new content offerings we will share both in print and online. First, enjoy the incredibly in-depth reviews put together by our colleagues at the venerable tomsguide.com. We’re able to highlight some of the gear they cover that’s appropriate for the classroom. But follow through to their site for the full reviews, which measure every speed and feed imaginable on Chromebooks, 3D printers, and parent mobile management software.

Likewise, be on the lookout for more curriculum content at techlearning.com provided by the folks at https://www.howitworksdaily.com. From science to history to space, we’ll be jamming the Edtech Ticker every day with their well-researched content so that your faculty will never be without lesson plans or ideas for the classroom. Finally, let us know what you think! Give us a shout or at least a tweet @techlearning.
