So I am very excited to christen this new Blog space with our first blog entry! I have been hoping we would break out a blog specific to the discussions around education technology solutions for K-12 and we have done just that! As laid out in the About This Blog section – and I will repeat it here – this blog is setup to foster discussions about trends, research, and products in the education technology space. The bloggers in this forum will focus on how education can benefit from technology; not just point solutions, but how true education transformation can occur through the use of the right holistic education technology solutions.I agree that is a mouthful, but to boil this down, the goal here is to really highlight and discuss cool ways technology SOLUTIONS can help change the way we do education in this country and throughout the world! The hope is that these discussions can help change the landscape of how we teach our kids and the tools we provide them for the 21st century and beyond! Now I use the word “SOLUTIONS” a lot and there is a reason for that. For me and many of my Intel education colleagues, solutions mean a very specific thing and in this space it is about bringing together the right technology, the right hardware, the right software, the right content, the right training, the right services into something that improves, builds on, or changes in a positive way the real usage models in a classroom or education situation. I believe it is not good enough to deliver a single piece of technology – be it a piece of hardware or a piece of software for example – and expect transformative things to happen. I believe that a good technology “SOLUTION” is what is needed in our education system to truly drive positive change in this space. I hope you all will engage with us in this blog – add your perspective, debate with us on these solutions, and add some real value at the end of the day that will positively impact what tools we can give our children to make them more successful in their future lives and careers! So some join me and our new blogging team in these discussions and hope to see you all getting involved! Thanks for joining us!
