  1. This is so cool. What a great resource! I have added your blog to my RSS feed reader and am so grateful that we’ve had the opportunity to connect. Keep doing great work and sharing it with us all.

    • Hey Philip! I’ve said it many times, but it’s worth saying again-I’m so glad we could connect at ISTE. You have so much to share and I look forward to connecting/discussing the PBL book (when I get time to read it!). Thanks for reaching out and commenting on my blog, it’s the kick in the pants I need to get blogging again.

      All the best!
