Great Bloggers of Canada

Remember blogging? For many people involved in technology and education, blogging is a relatively old tool and my guess is that many of you reading this either have a blog or at one time created one. For many reasons, they still are a great way to reflect, share and provide a versatile platform for a variety of purposes. As a proud Canadian, I wanted to share
