The "How" Can Not Be an Excuse

Once the "what" is decided, the "how" always follows. We must not make the "how" an excuse for not facing and accepting the "what."

Quote by Pearl Buck

I recently came across this quote. It struck a chord with me. How often do we give up on a great idea, because we disagree on the "how."?

Integration Conversations

This is hopefully the start of a series of interviews with some of the amazing teachers I work with. I hope that hearing how others are using technology in their classroom will spark some ideas for you as well. If you interested in being interviewed, please contact me to set up a time.

In the first interview, I spoke with Carrie Ehrlich, a 3rd grade teacher at Oakwood Elementary School. She wrote a grant last year for two iPod Touches and has been using them with her students in a variety of ways.
