It requires becoming a risk taker, a dreamer and a believer in the potential and power of technology to improve teaching and learning.” -Margaret Trybus, Ed.D. “Being a part of someone’s ‘ah ha’ moment, when they have grasped the concept, idea, the technology, is worth the effort.” -Michael Sukowski, M.Ed.
