Closing NECC Keynote: Tim Tyson

Well, NECC will be over in about an hour and I'm finally sitting down to my first session!

NECC update

As I sit here in the lobby of the Omni, I realize that this is the first time in the last four days that I haven't been actively involved in a conversation with people. When I used to go to conferences, as a young and budding blogger, I'd typically sit down along the wall somewhere [...]

Monday Morning Video: What do teachers make?
