Every Monday, I will post tech websites, software, and/or news articles that I think are fun, interesting, or something I think the you will enjoy. These finds are for anyone, not just the teachers here at Escobedo. However, because our purpose is to make the curriculum come alive with technology, where appropriate, I will add notes for teachers on how they could incorporate the finds into their classrooms.
If you have a tech find, please visit my Submit a Tech Find page and submit your find. You could win a prize!
