'LIGHTS, CAMERA, A... REVIEW': It's
no secret that we're biased towards snappy titles and smart words when
it comes to content -- just check out the 120 newsletters we've cranked
out to date. But we also hope to bring you quality content in every way
Here's our most recent experiment: Over the past summer, Jennie Dougherty, who created the BetaClassroom blog and edUpgrade, has been working hard with EdSurge on a series of video quick-take reviews of products.
Our goal with these reviews is to highlight for educators some
of the strengths and weaknesses of tools that are available to use in
classrooms right now. Think of these videos as conversation starters.
Jennie's picked some of the products that she has relied on when
teaching high school as the first subjects for her reviews. Her debut review is on the teacher communications tool, Remind101. You can read more about Remind101 on EdSurge here.
If you're a teacher, please nominate products that you'd like to see reviewed in our
"two-stars-and-a-wish" format. Let us know here. And if you have ideas about how to improve these segments, let us know here, too.
Even better: become a star! We invite teachers who have used
products extensively--and have some thoughts about what makes them
useful or not--to join our view reviews. Drop a note to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
