My FETC’15 highlights:

 

If these are your areas of interest you’ve probably already seen the following but these are the highlights of what was new (somewhat or a new way to think about something old)  to me this year 😉  Overall, there wasn’t a lot new, but the biggest buzz was blended learning, maker spaces, and GBL and gamification

The gaming folks have probably all seen this, but I learned of http://www.kqed.org/assets/pdf/news/MindShift-GuidetoDigitalGamesandLearning.pdf (Links to an external site.) at FETC this week. Also look into the work of the Joan Ganz Cooney Center. www.joanganzcooneycenter.org (Links to an external site.) (I had never seen this)

eyewire.org – a game to map the brain..(a student of mine showed me this one he spends hours on it)

uni motionsavvy.com is a deaf translator that looks quite cool on a tablet

newsela.com for kids as well as www.exibi.com (Links to an external site.) look interesting.
