The Week in Review – Epic Adventures in Educational Technologies

Good morning from the Free Technology for Teachers World Headquarters in Woodstock, Maine.

Thank you to everyone who came to my presentations and especially those who took the time to say hello afterwards. Getting to meet teachers all over the country is my favorite part of speaking at conferences. If you would like to speak at an event near you, please get in touch by email at richardbyrne (at)
