Emerging Trends in Education: Collaborative Tools and Technology  by Debbie, B.

Stepping into a classroom, you will find that it is filled with all sort of multimodal and digital resources such as interactive technology apps on iPads that enter the classroom in the pockets, bags and backpacks of many of the students and educators. The role and the implementation of educational technology trends with the fast-paced progression of these technologies, will continue to stimulate further research for teachers, curriculum designers and the academic community. here are some of resources I found helpful to share.
