EduBlog Awards were announced a few days ago and unfortunately Educational Technology and Mobile Learning did not win but was among the finalists. I must admit that I did not even know my blog was among the finalists till today or else I would have been promoting my nomination just like what the other finalists and winners did.This month has been the busiest month in my entire life, everything just got piled up on me , my Master exams, work, working on my blog template, preparing ebooks to publish here later on and the list goes on. One of the things I like about this Edublog Award nominations is that they feature great blogs you might not even have heard of before .
In 2006, Sir Ken Robinson took the TED stage and delivered what is now the most viewed TED talk of all times . With wit and humor, and in less than 20 minutes, he dissected the modern educational structure, and asked a question few have dared to ask: Are schools killing our dreams? He argued that creativity needs to be instilled in education, and with that, sparked a movement. The talk sent ripples through out the world, inspired millions of people, and started a new conversation around what education ought to be. Four years later, he returned to the TED stage , this time with a new question around human potential. It’s become very clear that creativity, imagination, and the nurturing of dreams are what education is meant to be.
Top 100 Education Trends of 2012 - From Effective Leadership Infographics to Fancy Locker Lights (TOPLIST)In 2012, virtually everything became digitized, as is exemplified in these education trends. As an industry, education has seen tons of updates in the past year; students are trading in their text books for eReaders, lectures for Google Hangouts and pencils for styluses. Though things like online grammar guides and language-learning apps were very memorable parts of the forecast for education in 2012, more traditional methods of teaching and learning are still prominent. Pieces like the sugary school supplies that allow students to snack while learning take a less digital, yet still fresh approach to the classroom. The Trend Hunter Education Trend Report will help teachers, education professionals, or anyone looking to enhance their training methods re-frame these micro trends to apply to their own practices.

When Apple first demonstrated its new map application to featured on iOS 6 at WWDC earlier this year, few were those who would have been to predict how badly it would be mocked and criticized once it replaced Google Maps on the brand’s devices. There’s no doubt about it, Apple still has a lot to envy to Google in that respect, but the end of the year also brought good news, as Google Maps finally found their way back to iOS – as a standalone app. Image credit: Justin Sullivan / Getty Images <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Internet is one of the main sources of information for us in education. As teachers and educators, we should always make sure we are equipped with the proper kit to dig into these sources and get what we are interested in. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has been posting articles about different tools to help teachers get the maximum out of technology in their classroom teaching. Today I am going to share with you some awesome tools that I am adding to the list of the best free web annotation tools for teachers. These tools will allow you to easily highlight, annotate and clip any part of a webpage and share it with others.
Using educationally appropriate online tools with students opens up a world of possibilities, but it's important to communicate a clear and consistent message about Internet safety every time you introduce a new tool. If students hear about Internet safety often enough, hopefully they will start thinking about it themselves. Creating an avatar is a really great way to teach students to protect their identities on the Internet. Avatars provide students with a safe way of representing themselves while also providing opportunities for creative writing experiences. So why not start out the school year with this simple but powerful learning opportunity? A good idea for a lesson is to start by asking students to create an avatar of their own, complete with a pen name.

Over the last few years I've done a lot of work developing writing and redeveloping online courses and course materials. In the initial rush to get learning online many organisations got themselves a Moodle platform and then attached a whole load of PDFs and .docs, added some forums and the odd video clip and called it an online course.
