We’ve got a pantload of new stuff for all our fabulous readers of the Edudemic Magazine. From a look at what’s making edtech tick behind the scenes to figuring out which device is actually the best one for your classroom and more… we’ve done our best to compile what’s happening, what you should know about, and what to expect in the world of education technology. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect in the July issue (Volume 7) of the Edudemic Magazine.

First, a quick note: we have a new development team just about done with an all-new version of the Edudemic Magazine app. It features free previews, Retina Display optimization, pinching, zooming, and about a dozen other features you’ve been asking for. Android version should be ready soon too!
It should also go without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) that every article is unique and not found on Edudemic.com. We work extra hard to brainstorm, discuss, write, lay out, and publish only the best stuff. Hopefully you enjoy our hard work!

Students are at the front lines of the parallel digital experience, simply because of their youth. They were born into a world in which rapid technology, the Internet, even online profiles would play a de facto role in their lives. And whether they’re sharing pop-culture sound bytes or completing online assignments for school, students exist comfortably with an online parallel world. And educators have every opportunity to not only buy into, but reap the benefits of that phenomenon.
We chat with Lisa Highfill of Fairlands Elementary School in Pleasanton, California. She talks about what she thinks makes an ideal classroom and some of the best parts about using technology in education.
