Teaching All Students: Apps by Mayer-Johnson - I'm disappointed...

"I am a very heavy Mayer-Johnson product user. I have and use Boardmaker Plus on a daily basis in the classroom (and have for years). I have several other products/devices in my classroom that I use on a regular basis, and I'm a fan of the new Boardmaker Studio (even though I don't have it). That being said, I'm disappointed in the latest news from Mayer-Johnson."
