Ed-tech trends of 2017
By Stephanie Zakhem
What can we expect in the new year in regards to tech trends? As educators, we live in a fast-paced world, one where we have limited time. CPCO has put together a list of resources that are sure to help you navigate through this year with ease.
- Makerspaces: Makerspaces started to emerge in 2016. They are a place in which people with shared interests can gather to work on projects, while sharing ideas, equipment and knowledge.
- Blended learning: This is an education program that combines online digital media with traditional classroom methods. In other words, it applies the practice of using both online and in-person learning experiences when teaching students.
- Sketchnotes: These are rich visual notes created from a mix of handwriting, drawings, hand-drawn typography, shapes, and visual elements like arrows, boxes and lines.
