Technology is everywhere!

Technology really has become a natural part of our day by day exploration. How can we maximize the tools available to us in the Kindegarten classroom?


Below are some tools to help add to your exploration including tools you may use to connect with other professionals as well as tools to use with students in the various learning environments.
