With many changes happening across districts it can be quite difficult to stay on top of the various trends in technology and the positive impacts they can have on teaching and learning. If you are not careful, you can easily be sidetracked by all the ‘stuff’ and lose sight of what students are supposed to accomplish using the ‘stuff’.

Remember, technology is just a tool and, in and of itself, does not make a difference in education. How it is used, how well the lessons are crafted to engage students in meaningful ways, and how well the teacher understands best teaching practices and strategies will determine the impact that technology can have on learning. Here I share many of my resources in hopes of helping you make a difference as you innovate teaching and learning. Feel free to share with me any resources you think should be added.
