    • Just the beginning
      We know there are lots of tools out there.
      This is just a beginning.
      We could start an Edmodo blog and share other Web 2.0 collaborative tools we find useful, and their applications with our component schools.
      The goal is to work together effectively at a distance, and further the DATA Project in terms of creating useful materials for our districts and sharing those statewide.
