Thanks for checking out my site! Thanks for the information. I looked at your friend's site (bascom.com) and I agree! It would be wonderful to create a learning portal for homeschooling. It's funny, because that was one of my goals upon beginning my blog. I wanted a place for homeschoolers in our area to be able to stay current on educational trends as well as provide a hub to access resources. In addition, I enjoy creating lessons for both regular classroom teachers as well as homeschoolers that integrate technology, in what I hope to be, a meaningful way. I know teachers are limited on time and are currently being bombarded with new technology tools. Hopefully, on my site, they can find a few ideas to use along the way. Thanks again for your kinds words and have an awesome day!

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
