A Good Read: A Plethora of Technology - http://plethoratech.blogspot.com/</span>

"This blog is not really about technology. It is about teaching and learning. It is dedicated to giving educators a place to gain thought provoking ideas, web links, teaching suggestions, and a place for the author to vette out ideas. The author sees technology not as the goal, but as a tool to accomplish the real goal: greater learning towards understanding."
