I've created a big world with several lessons that have already been used by several elementary and middle school teachers. Chances are you've heard of the game from your students.

Looking for help with Technology Integration

I am looking for someone to conduct a summer conference with the teachers in my school. I need someone that is knowledgeable in integrating technology that could help the teachers sculpt a path for the upcoming years. Someone to take the teachers (k-8) and help them develop a road map. Is there someone out there like this?

No Tech Lesson Plans?

When I have a substitute teacher my principal won't let my students use the computers or iPads. I've been having a hard time thinking of lesson plans that last an hour long. I've been gone quite a lot this year for tech trainings and coaching tennis. Any ideas would be great! Thanks!

New Site

I see a lot of people are still posting here.  It would be great if we could all move to the new site.  I guess this one will be here until the subscription runs out.  If you have any problems getting on the new site, please post here and I will see if Jen or I can help you.  The new site is http://ett.spruz.com/
