Welcome!

Welcome to my first blog! My goal for this blog is for teachers (especially the ones I work with) to share ideas for using technology in their classrooms. Our students live in a world that is so very different than the one we grew up in, and if we are going to reach them we have to not only visit their world but take up residence in it.

To this end, I will be posting information here that I find of interest and hope that you will do the same. Of course, this blog is by no means limited to discussions of technology alone. Feel free to post any questions or comments here about teaching or life in general. I know teachers have a lot to say, so let's hear it!

Any suggestions for the blog will also be most appreciated.

Good for you! It's so wonderful to see you skyrocketing with new technologies. My hats off to you for the time and energy you have put into becoming a 21st century teacher. You're not just a star - you're a whole planet!

Exciting stuff. I think you left me at "uh...what?" I agree with Anna, but I think you're a planet with rings (they are pretty cool and so are you!).
