The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good evening from Woodstock, Maine where the fireworks are popping all over town. Even though my dogs aren't happy about the fireworks I'm happy to be home with them after a busy week at the ISTE conference. The conference was a great opportunity to meet new people and re-connect with old friends. I'm already looking forward to next year's conference.

Part of the ISTE news is that I have joined the leadershop team of MindRocket Media Group. I'll be doing work with MRMG as a product analyst. Don't worry, I'll be keeping the same posting schedule here on
