No revolution can take place unless the upstarts speak the same dialect. Even though education has existed for eons, education technology is just getting started. To help, we're compiling a sort of Berlitz guide to edtech phraseology. (See the topics on the right). We welcome your thoughts about other fundamental terms -- as your comments on definitions.
We welcome your suggestions either of terms you think are fundamental to education technology--or ones you'd like to know. (Just drop us a note via feedback).
Our sources include: Karen Cator, formerly director of the office of educational technology, has helped lay out some terminology; the Clayton Christensen Institute, a non-profit co-founded by Michael B. Horn, who worked with Harvard University's Clayton Christensen to write one of the manifestos of the edtech movement, Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change The Way The World Learns. In addition, Institute collaborator Heather Clayton Staker penned a paper on the "Rise of K-12 Blended Learning," with definitions.
Say what you mean -- and mean what you say!
