I am a Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction in Hudson County New Jersey. This is my 8th year in education. I am absolutely passionate about the relationship between education, technology, and leadership as we prepare students to be independent, life-long learners, in the 21st century digital world. I have worked in two different states and in both places I was fortunate enough to work in schools that have one to one environments. I am currently a Doctoral Candidate in a Global Leadership Program with ADE’s from all over the world.

I absolutely love your blog and and am inspired by your mission to connect education and technology in order to empower students in this new digital age. I came across this new app for iPad called Flowboard that is a catalyst for “touch publishing”. It’s an app that I wish was around when I was in high school! It’s super easy to use, especially in the classroom. Students can utilize it for presentations, projects, and even to help commemorate significant events in their personal life. You can share content, include links to websites, photos, galleries, text, and it will soon have a YouTube component in the next version launching on the 27th. It is basically a new and improved and much easier to use version of PowerPoint solely created for the iPad. Since you have such a passion for ipaded, I would love to hear your thoughts on Flowboard! A friend of mine created it and we’re trying to get as much feedback as possible to make it the best it can be. Please try it out at Flowboard.com and dl the free app here: http://bit.ly/Flowboard_iPad
Thanks for all of your insightful blogs!
Sure I will try it out with the kids this week 🙂
I am a teacher in the UK and have been working with a colleague to make http://www.classcharts.com.
It is for seating charts & behavior and is 100% free for teachers.
We are trying to get people aware of what we are doing and am wondering if you can help?
Do you think you might be able to find the time to take a quick look and maybe write about it if you think it is of interest to your readers?
If you would like more info then please do let me know!
Great website, your passion for teaching, technology and education shows in your writing. Keep up the great work, I will bookmark your site.
Tried to reach you via twitter but to no avail…guess you’re a busy teacher 🙂
Any chance of a tutorial on the AR links you gave examples of in your ibook?
Keep up your good work. It’s very uplifting to see such enthusiasm about tech. in the classroom.
Happy new year

Hello, I’m working on my masters’ degree in Ed Tech at American College of Education. I was hoping to get your permission to use your YouTube video about how to create pre made quizzes in Socrative 2.0 for a paper in my current class. May I use it, if I give proper credit?
Of course, feel free to use it.
I’d like to ask you a few questions about Layar in particular. I attended your session on AR at the School @ Columbia last November and have begun to try integrating AR and have some follow up questions if you would be so kind as to exchange some emails with me?
Of course. Feel free to email me. I will be at the April 27th edcampnyc
Dear Courtney, I am Jason, a fresh doctoral candidate at the University of Auckland, NZ. I occasionally watched your YouTube video about your reflection of Google Glass. Your Google Glass in the Class is SO interesting! I am very impressed with your whole experiment journey!!! Would you like to exchange some emails with me or have some Skype chats? I am planning to do something about mobile learning and teacher’s development. Of course, I welcome your other great ideas! I look forward hearing from you. (Could you please kindly provide me your email address?)
Sure Jason — it is email@example.com
