Welcome to EDTECH. EDTECH plays an influential role in determining the future directions of the uses of technology in education for many universities and school districts.
For teachers in low bandwidth school settings - schools with slow or no internet connections - streaming online videos in class is not an option available to them. There are many useful, educational videos such as Khan Academy, which teachers would love to show their students but it is just not possible in their school setting.
While this isn't anniversary time -- EDTECH was founded on Feb 10, 1989. Some of our readers weren't even born then -- many hadn't graduated high school and most probably weren't in an EDTECH profession.
When I (like many of you) first became aware of this great network we were easily getting 30 or more messages a week. Sometimes that many in a day.
There were a team of editors working on the content to make sure it met the standards that EDTECH has adopted since it's inception.
