Talk is Cheap

Conferences, learning networks, professional development sessions, edchats, etc... give us something to think about, but I learn better by getting practical.



How?



1. Put your money where your mouth is. Don't just talk about online education. There are heaps of free, easy to-use, software out there. Make a tech-lesson, test it,… Continue

Hypnotize Them

Grammar.



Many shudder at the mere mention of the word.
