EdTech Isn't Just About Students. It's About Teachers, Too.

This week we noticed two big things in our edtech roundup.

1. There seems to be a refreshed interest in using tech to not only improve student outcomes, but support, train, and evaluate teachers. Or at least there is refreshed interest in discussing tech + teachers.

2. Personalized learning is still the buzzword du jour. Personalized learning in higher ed. Personalized learning in conjunction with the rewrite of No Child Left Behind. Personalized learning's connection to data and privacy. You get the picture.

You'll also find a post about the success rate of online lectures as well as predictions for edtech in 2016 to round out our rundown. Stories below.
