Week in Review - A Mention on National TV

The big news for this week's week-in-review post was going be the news that twice this week Free Technology for Teachers reached new records for visits in a day. But as I was composing the post Mario Armstrong mentioned Free Technology for Teachers on his weekly CNN segment. I didn't have any advance notice that Mario was going to do that so, needless to say, I was stoked, jacked-up, excited, part an adjective! CNN is doing a series of back-to-school tech segments and it was during this morning's segment that the host asked Mario for a recommendation for teachers and he mentioned Free Technology for Teachers. I'll get the video up when it becomes available. Thank you Mario! Read Mario's blog post about it here.

As mentioned above, twice this week Free Technology for Teachers reached new records for visitors in a day and visitors for a week. Thank you to everyone that helped to make that possible by sharing posts on Twitter, Facebook, Diigo, and many other social networking sites. Together we can help more educators learn about free resources that can improve our students' learning experiences.
