Though it has continued to snow in New England this week, the calendar says that Spring is here! If that’s the case, then it can only mean one thing at EdTechTeacher – we are furiously preparing for our 2013 Summer Workshops. That said, we have broadened the scope of our research in light of our new offerings. From this point forward, in addition to iPad resources, you’ll find information about BYOD, Google, Common Core, and more!
