Free Tech Assesment anyone??

Hello everyone! I've been trying to convince my boss to let me give away our new product, SimpleAssessment: Student Technology Proficiency, FREE to all districts at NECC. They think I'm crazy. I think it's a great idea.

I'm creating a report to prove to them why I think this idea is so amazing - mostly, they don't think districts would want to participate. I would love to include comments in my report about what actual tech coordinators/curriculum directors think about… Continue

SimpleAssessment - Finally Done!

PHEW! Finally was able to launch the new product today. Feels great - like the feeling I used to get after final exams and school was wrapping up for the year. Now I can breath...just for a minute though!

I explained that it was basically an equivalent to YouTube with educational material perfect for the classroom.

Why I love technology in education...

In high school, my teachers never cared about me – they didn’t care about any of us. They didn’t care how well I performed in class. They didn’t care if I was using the best available resources. They didn’t care what I was learning or if I was being challenged. They didn’t care about my success.…
