Technology has the shelf life of a banana. - Scott McNealy, CEO Sun Microsystems

Today's children will never know a world without technology.  It is immersed in our culture, taught at our schools, essential to our workplaces, and built into our homes.  With every day that goes by, technology evolves exponentially and the digital divide between kids and adults grows ever wider.  Instead of giving in to the thinking that we are separated forever, I believe we can create an environment that will bridge the gap between teachers and students and between parents and children.  Together, we can find creative and effective ways to bring us all closer together as families, schools, communities, and the world. 

Through this website I look forward to sharing effective ideas with all of you and to hearing your questions, concerns, and your own ideas about what works for you, your children, and your students when it comes to using technology.
