For a while I've been brainstorming ways I could combine my passion for writing with my passion for sharing technology integration ideas with educators. Social media has been a great outlet, but 140 characters limits the depth to which I can share ideas, and with the vast amounts of chats and information being shared, it's not always guaranteed that readers will stumble across the tweets or posts. So, what is someone like me, who wants to share ideas, to do? There has to be an outlet!
Introducing: Tech in Focus! Through Tech in Focus I plan to publish a collection of eBooks, videos, and more, each focused on a specific tech tool that can be used in an elementary classroom. At least one eBook will be released per month, and the ideas and examples shared will be tied to areas of the Big Four: Content planning, instruction, assessment, and community building.
I hope Tech in Focus will be the outlet I've been searching for, and allow me to continue sharing my ideas and experiences revolving around tech integration and the Big Four at the elementary level. I've created a Tech in Focus page on this site, and will add the titles as they are released on the iBooks store and my YouTube channel.
