I started my new role in education this week as a Technology Integrator here in Titletown USA! I will be working with teachers to assist them with implementing technology in the classroom to help engage their students. So I get to be a Pirate beyond my own classroom. I am excited and with 2 days in, I am enjoying the job and especially the team I get to work with. Unfortunately tonight I will not be able to host because I get a belated Birthday present from my wife and get to see the best football team ever play at Lambeau Field! So our host tonight is Dwight Stevenson @dwsteven. I am excited to see all the ideas you have, and will do my best to jump in during the game. I have created the questions in a different format tonight, so I hope it turns out okay. I tried to provide some examples of technology to go along with the questions to show some of my own responses. Have fun, and Go Pack Go! (sorry to non-Packer fans, but not really)
