A Visual Cheat Sheet For Education Technology

by TeachThought Staff

Keeping up with technology is impossible, even for blogs like Mashable, Engadget, and Techcrunch that do it for a living. Moore’s Law and all. And lately, education has had its share of innovation, whether it’s showing up in your local public school/K-20 classroom or not. Combine the two, and it can be difficult to keep up.

The following infographic/cheat sheet from @goboundless outlines some of the larger scale (eLearning) or controversial (MOOC) movements, as well as those on the rise (1:1, personalized learning), and providing working definitions for each. Perhaps this is old hat for you, but there may be a teacher still understanding how to implement technology in the classroom. This could act as a kind of overview of what’s out there.

  1. Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC)
  2. Gamification
  3. Virtual Classrooms
  4. Digital Storytelling
  5. Blended Learning
  6. 1:1 Technology
  7. Asynchronous Learning
