Hi there :-)
I am very interested in Brain based learning. One of my favorites is Dr. Judy Willis who is a neurologist and middle school teacher. Her books give practical strategies with the science behind them.

"Thanks for that Linda.  Tech is a tool just like a pencil or a ruler.  We have never given marks for the use of either of those unless the work is not legible or unreadable.  Thank you for the links."
