Hey Daniel!  I'd love to have you attend!  My session is scheduled for Tuesday night at 10:00pm Central Time.

Here is a Livebinder full of resources for this session.

Hi Ashley, 

I'm interested in joining. However, I'm still very new to this website and how I can participate...

Is there a link to the online discussion time or a reminder so I won't miss it?

I live in Taiwan (UTC +8) so I'm not sure what time it is for me? 

Thanks a lot!


Be sure to join me tomorrow, November 13th at 10:00p.m. Central Time:

Oh No. at that time I will be during a meeting at school. Is it possible that there will be a recording to listen to after session? Thank you very much.

The session will be recorded. I will try to post a link back here if it is not automatically archived. Thanks for your interest!

I may join your session. i am very much in Technology in the classroom WITH the teacher monitoring. I believe that the blended approach is the best (technology + traditional approaches).
