Before leaping into 2017 and exploring even more ways to use technology in education, let’s look back at the topics we explored in 2016.

Because so many of you have commented that video, and YouTube in particular, is one of your favorite uses of technology in the classroom, we devoted a whole series of posts on the topic exploring it from different angles. Other posts covered ideas for using online tools such as Google Docs, Facebook, and Padlet while still more posts explored ideas that could be implemented via a number of different online tools, such as website or resume making. Finally, a fourth group of posts looked at research or issues affecting the use of technology in education. In case you missed any of them the first time around, browse through the list below and find the topics that interest you!
