It's Here! Educational Technology Resources Database
We just launched an exciting initiative to provide educators with an efficient technology resource database that is teacher-tested. Visit our EdTech Database to see reviews of resources such as PlaySpent, Prezi, and Poll Everywhere that have been evaluated by our Reviewer Team.
In order to offer this service, we are looking for you to share reviews of educational technology resources you have used in your classroom. Please visit our Volunteer Opportunities to learn more about joining our team as an Educational Technology Reviewer.
New Horizons for Learning (NHFL) seeks to provide a forum where educators and researchers will be equal partners developing research questions, conducting research in classrooms, and driving innovation in education. Ultimately the site will create a virtual round table where interdisciplinary professionals with a common interest in learning can form partnerships to further educational research, policy, and practices.
Since 1980, New Horizons for Learning (NHFL) has served as a leading-edge resource for understanding learning. Concerned that important research was not reaching most classrooms, founder Dee Dickinson decided to create a network to reach teachers with new information she would have loved to have when she was in the classroom. NHFL’s role has always been to give visibility to effective teaching and learning practices and ideas that have not yet reached the mainstream. Additionally, NHFL has worked in coordination with other reputable networks and learning communities to synthesize the information and turn information into knowledge and knowledge into practice. The website has also been quoted in numerous books and journals, and has received prestigious awards, including one from the International Society for Technology in Education as one of the best education sites on the Internet.

After 26 years of voluntary service as a non-profit network, NHFL was in search of a new host due to the retirement of its founder, Dee Dickinson.Today, New Horizons for Learning at www.education.jhu.edu/newhorizons has transferred to the editorial team at Johns Hopkins University School of Education. It remains a non-profit, international network of educators focused on identifying, communicating, and implementing the most effective teaching and learning strategies at all ages and abilities.
