CALL TO ACTION: THINGS YOU CAN DO TOMORROW 

  1. First reflect - Think about and identify problems and needs you experience in your classroom, as well as what goals you have as a teacher.
  2. Next, choose ONE goal/problem/need area to focus on. 
  3. Finally, look for technology that will address that ONE goal/problem/need you’ve identified as important and want to solve.
