Watching the movie, About a boy, with my students and listening to the Christmas song Will’s father wrote rang a bell and I just jotted down the ideas to start this project. I’ll do it… Continue

Wave invite

Although I got an invite for Google Wave today, when I went to check it out, I was unable to get on. I got an error message. I am so disappointed because I was eager to try it out. Any suggestions?

Many of your colleagues have found value in involving their students in the… Continue

"You are correct which makes this a even more sad situation. It can easily be said that the students with disabilities who are included in the general education classrooms do receive the same level of technology as their non-disabled peers. However,…"
