eMINTS Conference 2014
Lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!
Well maybe not quite lions and tigers, but definitely bears and moose and iPads. Oh my! There was lots of inspiration throughout the conference that needs to be shared. From the school visit to keynote speakers to Camp eMINTS, there were so many great ideas to implement into a true eMINTS classroom.
