Welcome to "EmergingEdTech" (http://emergingedtech.com)! I've believed for years that properly implemented and supported instructional technologies can help to engage students and improve learning and outcomes. More personalized and differentiated instruction, self directed learning by inspired students, higher grades and increased retention and graduation rates are all within our grasp. Every day, technologies are being employed to help address these issues and the body of empirical evidence indicating that this can work continues to grow. I've devoted many hours to learning more about this since 2009 and I've been sharing this journey with others. Come join the dialogue!
