What’s made a difference in how you teach? Let me know and you could be featured on Ask a Tech Teacher. I’m looking for:

  • reviews of technology-in-education books or ebooks
  • essays on tech ed topics
  • White papers on tech ed topics
  • Education pedagogy

If you’ve written a review and posted it on your blog, please send the link to me. I will provide a link back to your blog and we’ll develop a Book Group right here on Ask a Tech Teacher. AND you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a FREE (picture of a) puppy.

I’m waiting…

BTW, if you have a book you’d like me to review, please click here.
