  1. This is one teched-up blog, I must say, Dr. Z. Voki, RSS feed, QR codes, second life piece, have it all going on. Inspiring! I wish I had more time to give to my blog and have it look like this. This conference does sound fascinating and I think I could learn a ton. We don't have a Spring Break this year (did you hear my weeping?), so I am wondering if I can get the time off. I may try, though. Thanks for the information.

    1. Thanks for the comment, O. I especially like the Odiogo which uses text to speech to make the blog accessible to the blind and turns it into an subscribe-able podcast.

      I hope that you can get the time off for the conference. Remind them how much you have given your district in the way of technology leadership and help them envision what this conference will teach you to do for the future.

      Good luck,
