The world of education moves quickly when it comes to news, trends, tools, and conferences. For example, SXSWEdu is happening as I write this and a lot of innovative ideas and buzzwords are spilling out of it. If you’re like me, you’re up to your neck in buzzwords and could use a break but that’s life.
In terms of buzzwords you should know about, keep an eye out for the word ‘teacherpreneur‘ as perhaps the biggest buzzword being bandied about SXSWEdu this week. It’s not a new term but seems to have gained some steam at the conference.
But there are a lot of other terms, trends, and stories being discussed. In an effort to try and capture and comment on the biggest stories, we’ve enlisted the help of Learn Egg who is a new way to keep on top of all the must-know education trends, tools, and more. Plus there’s a bit of sass thrown in for good measure. Learn Egg is educational but that doesn’t mean it has to be dry and boring, right?
Here are our picks for the must-read education stories of the past few days. You can see all these stories, some witty remarks, and more over at Learn Egg. Enjoy!
