Integrating technology into the classroom has become one of my greatest passions as a professional educator. Every day, I use technology to motivate students to higher academic achievement. This is usually accomplished by some engaging lesson or activity - and typically involves some piece of technology. On my website/blog This Week In Ed Tech I'm always learning best practices from like-minded educators from around the Internet. I review products from hardware to software; cover news as it relates to educational technology; and post downloadable content, including interactive whiteboard lessons and activities.
