whatwearedoing


There have been a lot of really cool projects, ideas, wikis, and forums floating around Skype, and twitter. It would be great to have a collection of samples to show administrators, or other teachers with whom we are working. If you are doing something NEW in your classroom this year as a result of what you learned at the summit, please tell us about it and add a link to it on this page.
