The educational technology and digital learning wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


1 Purpose

Below you will find a selected list of links that will help you keep in touch with news about educational technology and related fields. Most of these have RSS feeds. This wiki has a very different role than most weblogs. Web logs most often promote new ideas and new technology or inform you about latest research. Here, we try to pull things together, but once in while we spend a week going through all the blogs to check if something really hot is missing.

This list is not really complete, but most links should help you keeping in touch - Daniel K. Schneider 13:09, 7 July 2008 (UTC).
