Emerging Technologies in Education

In June, the Center for Digital Education published an article on how cloud computing and mobile will become mainstream in K-12 education within the next year. The information comes from the 2013 Horizons Report from The New Media Consortium, CoSN and ISTE. Within the report, Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving educators, school administrators, and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning.

As a cloud based service that streams audio books to desktops and mobile devices in the classroom and beyond, we here at Tales2Go are happy about the prediction.

Tales2Go in Action

Shannon McClintock Miller, Teacher Librarian and Technology Integrationist at Van Meter Elementary School in Van Meter, IA has added Tales2Go to her library resources. Check out this great blog she wrote on implementing Tales2Go in her school. She gives a great example of a fourth grader who checked out Diary of a Wimpy Kid and then listened and read along with Tales2Go. She says, "With the website and app, the audio books within Tales2Go are very easy to search and find. There are a lot of ways one can find what they want to read too." She added, "We are creating and inspiring readers by giving our students and school community one more place to read with Tales2Go"
