December Challenge: Invite a Friend to Our ITPLN

We are having a challenge for the month of December. We would love to have more participation in our group. This is a crazy time of year; the children are excited, we are busy with activities in our schools, offices, and at home and know that posting on our blog is not a priority. Our challenge to you is to invite one new person (more than one is welcome too J) from within GCS to our ITPLN. Ask them to post a brief intro on our blog and share with us the technology they are using in their classrooms. Make sure they tell us you invited them into the group and we will put your name in a drawing for a small gift at the end of December.
