Time for some blatant solicitation of feedback here. I'm in the process of formulating a plan to present at an upcoming conference in Feb of next year. I'd like the session to really get indepth on what's up and coming. In the end I want to be able to introduce a ton of tools and companies to look out for and have people walk away with a truly enlightened experience.
I feel like at a lot of edtech conferences we get the same things rehashed over and over. How to use and utilize [insert Google product], Creating [insert expensive product with overhead] on the cheap, etc. I'm more interested in saying something along the lines of "Facebook was 2007, Twitter was 2008, let's talk about 2009, 2010, and beyond". Part of what's great about technology is how quickly things can change, but it's also a burden to those trying to keep ahead of the curve.
So that brings me to my question, which is two-part. 1. What products, companies, tools, and websites are still absolutely clueless about and would love to learn more about? 2. Are there any needs/wants that you don't feel you have a tool for your toolbox to meet them?
