VIrtual Reality Augemented Reality EdTech Last week, we looked at assessment and evaluation EdTech tools and apps. This week, we continue our series by diving deeper into augmented and virtual reality tools and apps. 

These tools and apps enable us to create immersive learning experiences for our learners. Simulations have been around for a long time, but newer tools and apps enable us to engage our learners in immersive experiences on a much lower budget. What was once a highly segmented toolset is now available for us to explore and integrate into our toolboxes!

LAssessment and Evaluation EdTech Toolsast week, we looked at social and community EdTech tools and apps. This week, we continue our series on our EdTech toolboxes by diving deeper into assessment and evaluation tools and apps.

We use this array of tech tools and apps for tests, surveys, and assignments, as well as for determining the value of our learning initiatives.

Social Collaborative Learning EdTechLast week, we looked at communication and interaction EdTech tools and apps. This week, we continue our series by diving deeper into social and community tools and apps.

Again, some of the tools and apps you find here stretch across multiple categories. We use social media to share content, communicate, and interact. Sometimes creating a community of practice or personalized learning network is not a project goal or objective, but we know that putting one in place will certainly promote knowledge and skill acquisition in our learner’s moments of need. These social and community tools and apps can help us do just that.

I’m going to approach this post a bit differently than the other posts in this series, as this category is broad, deep, and touches so many other compartments that I’ve established in our toolboxes. Instead of sharing my preferences of specific tools (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Slack, Yammer, etc.), I’m going to concentrate on overall features to look for, considerations, what you might want to learn more about, and my vision for the future of social and community tools and apps.
