Whatisschool September 18, 2014

Thank you and @web20classroom for another amazing chat!
This was a conversation I was really sore to miss, but back to school night is a must do and also yielded a great time and great information!  I want to send out a special thank you to Steve Anderson for joining us and sharing his knowledge and experience in educational technology.  It is an exciting time to be a teacher and learning from each other will ensure our students have the opportunity to master the skills they will need the most when they graduate.  The archive is posted below.
