EdTech Cadre Update
Keeping the Connected Educator Connected!
Did you dig in to anything new techie-wise in your classroom last week? Push any buttons? Investigate any new sites or platforms? Many of us grew up in an era where you tiptoed around tech. Cleaning a 33 1/3 was a tedious process at best, and if you didn't drop the needle just so on the record, the vinyl would be scratched. The internet is a bit more resilient than that. Don't be afraid to explore and to click on things. Instead adopt the mantra, "I wonder what this does..." You won't break the internet! I promise.
Keep an eye on our EdTech Cadre Digital badge group. Badges for Twitter, SAMR, and Padlet will be making an appearance soon!

Is there something you would like to see highlighted in this newsletter? Let me know and I will write it up!
Next update will be headed your way after the break! Enjoy!
