Good afternoon/evening/morning from Sydney, Australia where I’m waiting to board my flight home after a great few days at the Future Schools Expo. A big thank you to everyone that came to see me speak at the expo. And an equally big thank you to everyone that helped this country boy navigate the big city. Of course, none of these opportunities to speak at conferences would be possible without all of you who have helped FreeTech4Teachers.com grow over the years. When I started this blog nearly eight years ago I never imagined that it would take me where it has. Thank you for your support!
