  • Thanks so much! Good idea showing it throughout the year and perhaps getting teachers who have embarked on one of the ideas to tell all the staff about it. Appreciate your comment :)

  • I really liked your Ten Tips for Technology Integration! Excellent ideas, useful links and a great way for teachers to have resources at their finger tips. This slideshow could be shown every 3-4 months throughout the year when some teachers might be ready to focus on another one of your ten tips. I hope teachers are given time to share their experiences with these tips. It looks like you are getting a great start to the new year. Congratulations on a very inspiring slideshow!
