Steve Hargadon and I recorded our last podcast of 2012 today, making our way through the rest of the Top Ed-Tech Trends that I've written about here on Hack Education over the course of the last few weeks.
As such, this episode covers open textbooks, education data, learning analytics, APIs, platforms, artificial intelligence, and the politics of ed-tech. We also talk briefly about what's missing my from list of "top trends" as well as my picks for the top startups of the year.
Bonus content: I was a guest on one of Steve's Ed-Tech Live shows alongside Wikispaces' Adam Frey to discussion success as an education technology entrepreneur. I also appeared in a Connected Learning episode, again with Steve, in which we (that is, Steve, Howard Rheingold, Pam Moran, Craig Seasholes and myself) talk about "hacking at the roots" and not the branches of education.
