Welcome!

I hope every educator will find something of interest on this blog. We all come to technology from our own personal background, and it is my aim to honor the wide variety of experience brought by all educators.

There's ALWAYS something shakin' in Ed Tech!

Where Can I Find?

As Educators, we are B-U-S-Y!  Even though we might want to do something new with technology, and integrate our lessons, we are afraid it will take too much time.  Even finding the right tool or resource will take time.  So, I've made this page to help busy educators find resources. 

Can't find what you are looking for?  Post a comment, and let me try to find it for you!
