TCEA Apps- Mother of all Apps

I had the pleasure of presenting at TCEA this February and I always get excited to leave with tons of resources. Here is a link that will help you choose apps for your age, grade level or just simply have a great list of app resources. I love how they are categorized by color and grade level appropriateness.

Who Fills Your Bucket?

Need Some PD on a Saturday Morning?

Its Saturday morning, my cup of joe in one hand and ready to look for some PD on my laptop. I came across this great blog and discovered some great articles and videos to help you "get your  motivation on"!
Credit goes out to Stump the Teacher for sharing his perspective on student engagement!
