Lincoln Agenda

March 21-25, 2016

This is so cool!

BloomBoard is a new site where educators curate collections of resources then have them reviewed by the BloomBoard team before they are made available to the public. To view them, you’ll need to open a free account, which takes about ten seconds. Then you’ll have access to BloomBoard’s growing collection of free, high-quality resources.

It's like Pinterest, but for educators, and doesn't link you to materials that you have to purchase.

We will be meeting on Monday morning to learn about this. This meeting is not required. Bring your laptop!
