We are an online resource for teachers and students to help integrate technology in the classroom. We highlight best practices and trends in the edtech space. Not too mention, we share lessons learned from how not to integrate technology in the classroom. Our goal is to inspire classroom innovation. When students are engaged, student achievement sky rockets.

Our goal is to be the best platform for educators with information and resources that can be implemented in the classroom. Our community helps us to share best practices for learning outcomes.

Feel free to leave a comment or share a resource with our learning community.

Moving forward we have three main objectives. Details forthcoming how these three will work together.

1.

PartnerWithSchools

Because Schools Matter

 

2.

I recorded this clip in my new office space. Before we launch I thought it important to share a brief story of why we exist.

We all have a story to tell , whether we admit it or not. This is the beginning of new chapter for us. We are about to launch something special.

It’s been quite some time since my last post. Below are the three main reasons for the slump:

Dad life.

Grad school life.

Teacher life

I have been swamped but I am ever more committed to moving forward with this project.I am moving swiftly to build something amazing to impact students. I can’t tell you all the details of what’s cooking now. However, I do want to stay in contact with you to let you know when we take flight!

What Is Digital Citizenship?

This is a guest post by Amanda Knox.

I promise you it’s not! When the internet was invented, people were excited, but they were also scared.

The possibilities are endless! We can share everything with anyone anywhere!

It’s a wild west of uncontrollable information. We can share anything with anyone anywhere? But the internet did not turn into a chaotic wasteland of porn sites, pop-up ads, and credit card fraud schemes, instead it became this incredible tool that has fueled revolutions, brought resources to people who desperately needed it, and even raised funds for a Veronica Mars movie.

But it’s still a dangerous place, and students today are in a unique position to ruin their lives and the lives of others way easier than has ever been possible. Here are some reminders that can help you make sure this doesn’t happen:

  1. Anyone can see anything that you post anywhere. You don’t care about anything but her number of Instagram likes now, but your grandma will see that picture of you in less than appropriate attire on the beach. Your future boss will too. It doesn’t matter if your photo is on private or your account is anonymous. The internet messes up sometimes and you’re the one that loses.
  2. The internet isn’t written in pencil. It’s written in ink. Tattoo ink. Even if you hit delete, that picture or post is archived somewhere. It might have been saved as a screenshot. Best to play it safe.
  3. There are people behind those user names. I’m not going to bore you with talk about cyber bullying. You know the consequences of cruel words, even ones said as a joke. Remember that it’s best to remain courteous at all times. Besides, optimistic posts tend to get more likes anyway.

Basically this “digital citizenship” is just fancy talk for “use common sense, don’t be mean, and don’t ruin your reputation and your future because you want followers.” And that’s something anyone can get behind, right?
