The Week in Review - It's About Being Connected

Good evening from an airplane somewhere over Massachusetts. I'm currently flying home from an awesome conference in Delaware. On Friday afternoon I spent some time with teachers in the Colonial School district and I was impressed by how connected and collaborative they are. Then I spent today with nearly 300 other teachers at the Colonial Tech Conference who were just as connected through Twitter, Voxer, and other networks. As this is Connected Educator Month, it was great to see so many connected teachers in one place.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Write Music in Google Documents
