Giving Credibility to the Shadow Education System

Best #Education Apps of 2011

What I enjoyed about this list of best education applications in 2011 is that there are so many apps in this list that are not directly marketed as education apps. It speaks to my belief that many of the solutions that create better manageability and efficiency for teachers and students are not coming from straight up education vendors.

Ed tech is going to surprise so many people with how it already exists on the social web, churning massive amounts of data and helping us pinpoint the best ways to teach kids. Here’s a small slice from the list, but you should visit Larry Ferlazzo’s blog for the full scoop.

As usual, in order to make this list, a site had to be:

* accessible to English Language Learners and non-tech savvy users.

* free-of-charge.

* appropriate for classroom use.

* completely browser-based with no download required.

It’s possible that a few of these sites began in 2010, but, if so, I’m including them in this list because they were “new to me” in 2011.
