“From old school to new school, 21st-century education is in the midst of a paradigm shift. Chalkboards have given way to smartboards, desktop clutter to digital clean, disparate data to dashboard clarity, and isolated teachers to connected educators. Yet while evidence of the power of technology’s transformative effect on matters of learning is all around us, the power to energize education still lies within us. With this year’s program, the dark corners of education are illuminated by brilliant minds at work resolving the challenges educators and students face. Untangling the toughest challenges are resilient souls skipping a can’t-be-done approach for workable, can-do solutions. With new technologies, the age-old purpose of raising the knowledge and ability level of our students and thus the potential for our global society to have a better tomorrow is more firmly within our grasp. We live in exciting times. Education has never stood a better chance at forward progress than it does now. In acknowledgment of the cool tools, leaders and trendsetters undauntedly energizing education, here are our finalists:” (visit www.edtechdigest.com) -EdTech Digest
