SavingsI am halfway through my year-end series on the Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012. This is a project that takes me a long time to do — to review everything that’s happened in ed-tech this year and to compile these overviews. I love doing so, as I learn a lot and see things that I mightn’t otherwise. And I hope there’s value here for my readers.

So with that in mind, I’d like to remind readers about the “donate” button on this site.

I purposefully keep Hack Education advertising-free. And unlike most other technology blogs, Hack Education isn’t owned by a major technology or media company. I have not taken investment money from the same venture capitalists who fund education/technology companies. I am an independent voice in an increasingly compromised industry.

I believe that a site like this should be crowdfunded, written for the community and in turn supported by the community — perhaps a bit like NPR (but without the government subsidy clearly, or the corporate sponsorship dollars).

So that’s what I’m doing here. If you are willing and able, I would very much appreciate your support. Thank you!
