Why this Website:
Integrating technology into the classroom has become one of my greatest passions as a professional educator. Every day, I try to use technology to motivate students towards higher academic achievement. This is usually accomplished by some engaging lesson or activity - and typically involves some piece of technology. I'm always learning best practices from like-minded educators from around either down the hall or around the world.
Sometimes I review products from hardware to software. Occasionally, I discuss news as it relates to educational technology. And sometimes, I just reflect on my teaching and share words of advice about my own experiences with the hopes that someone might learn from my experiences.
