This week I had the opportunity to speak to 1,000 employees of the Iowa City School District as their "back to school" keynote speaker. After my keynote I had the opportunity to tour part of the district. I must say that I was impressed by their plans for truly making technology a seamless part of their students' daily learning. I've been fortunate to speak to many groups this summer and I have some more speaking engagements coming up this fall. If you're interested in having me speak at your school or conference please feel free to use the contact form here or email me directly at richardbyrne (at ) freetech4teachers (dot) com.
As I do every week I have rounded up the most popular posts of the week and here they are:
