Digital edtech for the non-edu

SNSlogoWhen I penned “Three Drivers of the Digital Classroom,” I did so to give those outside of education visibility into trends changing K-12 education. More specifically, I did so at the invitation of Mark Anderson, publisher of the long-running Strategic News Service newsletter, which provides primarily Mark’s keen and thoughtful insights for executives and financial analysts in the computing and communications industries. (I’m a long-time subscriber.)

But the in-depth essay also serves a second purpose: to highlight developments in digital learning and education technology at three recent, key industry conferences. For those outside of edtech, they are the Software and Information Industry Association’s Ed Tech Industry Summit, the Association of Educational Publishers’ Content in Context Conference and the International Society for Technology in Education’s ISTE 2011 conference and exposition.

So I’ve made the essay easier to keep as a reference by making it available as a PDF which you can download here. It now also includes Mark’s kind introduction and close from the Strategic News Service newsletter in which it originally appeared. Feel free to share (but please don’t re-publish or re-post without permission). And check out Mark’s SNS site as well.
