This wiki page has links to sources about educational technology. They are broad in their scope, and range from lists of free Web 2.0 tools to how and why educational technology is important. I have a personal interest in educational technology for my own use, for using with my students, and for sharing with my colleagues. These sites will help keep me up-to-date on the ins and outs of educational technology.
