  • Welcome! Today we are going to be talking about Educational Technology Resources. There are many resources we can use throughout the Internet but we are only going to be talking about three today.

Personal Reflection of JOLT 5. My Personal Reflection of JOLT

  • This website is a great way for teachers and undergraduate education students to get advise from top researchers and scholars.
  • I like the layout and the access to other manuscripts that might help with the process of your own manuscript.
  • Lastly, I like the fact that it is free to subscribe to JOLT and that they send you notifications when new issues are added to the website.

  • JSTOR was founded in 1995 to build trusted digital archives for scholarship. Today, we work with the scholarly community to preserve their work and the materials they rely upon, and to build a common research platform that promotes the discovery and use of these resources.
  • In 2009, JSTOR merged with and became a service ofITHAKA , a not-for-profit organization helping the academic community use digital technologies to preserve the scholarly record and to advance scholarship and teaching in sustainable ways.

Personal Reflection of JSTOR 8. My Personal Reflection of JSTOR

  • This website has endless possibilities when it comes to academic journals. When you sign up with them you have access not only to institutions in the United States but also 15 other countries.
  • The format of the website is very helpful. You can browse by discipline, title, or publisher and you can also search by citation.
  • The website also provides the reader with different languages to make it more convenient for people that use English as a second language.

Personal Reflection of ERIC 11. My Personal Reflection of ERIC

  • ERIC is a very complex website that gives you resources to just about anything you may be looking for.
  • It gives help to researchers, teachers, librarians, administrators, education policymakers, instructors, and students in teacher-preparation programs, parents, the media and business communities, and the general public. ( Who Uses ERIC,
  • ERICWebPortal/ resources/html/collection/about_collection.html )
  • Like the other sites, it is easy to sign up for ERIC but I feel that it is more beneficial to join a website like this one than the other two because this website has more depth and does not just focus on journals.

Back to Main Menu 12. Conclusion

  • Those are just three of the many educational resources that are available to students and faculty that are involved in the education field.
  • All three sources are excellent when looking for information but as I have said before, I feel that ERIC is the best website for people to use because it goes beyond journals and it has an easy search engine where you can break down your searches.
  • To conclude, when it comes to resources I do not think that many students realize how much we have at our fingertips. There are a plethora of extraordinary sites whose information is nearly endless; and people often wonder if they can find enough information on a given subject.
