My Brave and Amazing Colleagues | Digital Classroom

My Brave and Amazing Colleagues | Digital Classroom | Tips for the Math Classroom | Scoop.it

As mentioned in an earlier post, our school has the great fortune to have expanded our iPad program from one classroom last year to 9 classrooms this year.

While this was also an intimidating prospect, I was excited to begin the year and learn with my new iPad colleagues.
