The 6 Best EdTech Newsletters To Sign Up For
By Jimmy Leach
You think you want your news pinged to you on an app, delivered by tweets, foisted on you by posts. But you don’t. Not really. You just think you do. You want to be seen as modern. In reality, you want to browse, to take it at a leisurely pace, to absorb it. You want it delivered on the age-old technology of your forefathers. You want it by email.
No matter what you think, email, good old email, is still a reliable, portable, readable way of getting your news. Curated by someone who knows more than you, with content written by people who know much more than you.
So forget your high-tech snobbery and sign up for these – the best EdTech email newsletters to subscribe to:
EdTech: Focus on Higher Education
EdTech: Focus on Higher Education – As you might expect from such a billing, it’s dominated by higher education, and beyond that, it’s very techy, with a strong focus on infrastructure, networks, security and hardware. Not so much on the shiny consumer end of the market, this is about the back-end, making things work. And invaluable to any large institution with a big community, on that basis.
EdSurge – A weekly newsletter on EdTech business, companies, products and events. US-centric and sometimes difficult to work out what focus they’re aiming for, but view it as a useful stream of digital consciousness and there’s a lot to gain.
GEDB – The new(ish) kid on the block. A site with a range of EdTech functions, but its newsletter is an aggregation of content from right around the world on all matters educational and digital. Wilfully eclectic and ranging from high-tech Silicon Valley stuff to less fancy, more fundamental stuff in the developing world, you’ll certainly learn something new.
Edutopia – A site rather easier to consume in bite-size chunks than its own navigation would allow. The site itself is less than intuitive, but has lots of good content and the email can be the best route to surface it. Lots of practice-based theory for teachers, plenty of inspiration to get things done.
Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom
Blogging about the web 2.0 connected classroom – A spectacularly cumbersome title for a personal blog about one man’s adventures in EdTech. Earnest and valuable, and mildly eccentric, this is a blog-as-mentor approach. Not all is applicable to everyone, but useful snippets and the email is perhaps the quickest route to getting what you need.
Education Dive is a great group of folks who have assembled a must-see daily newsletter (delivered on weekdays) that breaks down everything you should know about that day. It’s a comprehensive look at the entire sector and it’ll take you under a minute to read.
