Free Back to School Guide from Edutopia

Edutopia has released a new free back to school guide for teaching with new media. The free guide contains ten tips, ideas, and resources for teaching with web tools this year. To get the free guide you do have to enter your email address which will put you on Edutopia's mailing list, but that's not necessarily a bad thing as I've generally found Edutopia's mailings to be brief and informative.
