Class Tech Tips: Getting Ready for 2014!

This has been an incredible year and I am looking forward to everything that 2014 has to bring! Next year I will be dedicating more of my time to working with teachers looking to integrate technology into their instruction. Take a minute to learn about some exciting things happening in 2014:

  • This February I will be hosting a live, interactive, webinar series that will take place over the course of four weeks! I highly encourage ELA teachers in elementary and middle school to check out how they can use technology to align their instruction to the Common Core.
  • For teachers looking to explore iPad best practices at their own pace, my course “Teach with Your iPad: Part I – Instruct, Assess, and Manage Your Classroom with a Single iPad” will remain 50% off for blog followers! Stay tuned for Part II this spring…
  • Take a peek at my events calendar. Are you looking for EdTech professional development at your school? Just ask!
  • This year my free iBook25 Ways to Become a Tech-Savvy Teacherwas downloaded over 1,500 times! Stay tuned for 25 MORE Waysin the next few months…
