FETC Update

Are you interested in learning new ways to use unitedstreaming to meet your students’ needs and networking with other educators? If so, you have two opportunities!

One of our newest DEN members in Florida is a teacher who really gets it. Jonathan Meyers, Gifted and Technology Resource teacher at Horizon Middle School in Kissimmee, Florida has committed to

Spring Training at FETC

One of the great things about Florida is that Spring Training is hosted right here! (My son is excited about this because he thinks he will get to see all these games.) I love Spring Training because it gives the team a chance to build their relationship, plan how to play the game, and then

Inspire Me!

One of my favorite pieces of software is Inspiration, and I am absolutely thrilled to hear that Inspiration 8 has finally been released. 7.6 was a great version, but it gets better in 8. Now, instead of hyperlinking to a video, I can embed video and sound right into the diagram! I can embed Martin
