TECH Month continues and spills over into October....with Social Media!
Nick Chater: Where Quality and Quantity of TECH tweets meet!
Free Tech 4 Teachers: We featured Richard Byrne’s Twitter account a few months ago, but this might be a better place to follow if you prefer Facebook!
Med Kharbach: Fantastic TECH boards (e.g. Free Tech for Teachers, Google Guide for Teachers, YouTube Tools, 21st Century Education, Free iPad Apps, and Great Web Tools)
Teachers on Pinterest: Great boards for Pre-School to Grade 6 and Subject boards (more of an overall teaching resource, but some TECH interlaced)
We may or may not agree with these opinions, but these are perfect for inspiring some great discussions between staff.
