Good afternoon from the FreeTech4Teachers.com World Headquarters in Maine. This week I had the privilege to once again present at the NCTIES Conference. If you are in the greater North Carolina area, the NCTIES conference is one that you don’t want to miss. Everyone there knows how to have fun while sharing and learning from each other. As you can see in the picture to the left, everyone shares powerstrips too.

1. Great Tools for Informal Assessment
