Have you ever been teaching away and students keep interrupting your perfectly planned and executed lesson with questions leaving you frustrated and getting you off-task?

Todays' Meet is a FREE backchannel that requires no account and is VERY easy to use. Give it a try... Go to todaysmeet.com/Tots2013 and join our room by entering your name and clicking on "join."
Once you have joined our room, tell me your name and your Twitter handle if you have one. :)
