Higher Educators to Learn About EdTech Collaborative

Tue May 13 2008

The EdTech Collaborative, a NASA-funded website to share best practices in educational technology, will be the subject of a professional development session at an upcoming conference for higher education leaders in West Virginia.

Dr. Laurie Ruberg, associate director of the Center for Educational Technologies®, will speak about the EdTech Collaborative during the 21st Century Connections: PK-12 Higher Education Conference on May 20-22 at the Embassy Suites in Charleston.

An alpha version of the EdTech Collaborative is now online. The website, which works like a wiki in that users contribute materials and can comment on or edit postings, was an outgrowth of the biennial benchmarking on educational technology report completed for NASA by the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future.

The EdTech Collaborative is about choosing and using educational technologies for more effective teaching and learning. Given the increased use of the Internet and the constant influx of promising educational tools, there is a need to know what works and what doesn't, and why. The site welcomes the contributions of educators, instructional designers, curriculum coordinators, teachers, administrators, and technology developers.
