This week, Maria was sick and the chat room was not hopping. I guess everyone is busy getting ready for the holidays. But Sheila and Lisa did have one guest, who we were thrilled to call into our skype call to have her join the chat. Amanda Marrinan took time away from her beach vacation to talk with us about how technology is working in the classrooms. Sheila, Amanda, and Lisa shared many very exciting for us, and getting to be commonplace for the kids, activities that occur daily in our classrooms. Enjoy the conversation.
