Resources from ECMP 355

Here are some of Alec Couros’ resources that he shared with us in my ECMP 355 class that I have found helpful. I have not explored all of them in great detail, but I have included this page for future reference to use during my teaching career. I think these will be great tools as I share my knowledge and learning from this class and apply it to my teaching practices and strive to integrate technology into the classroom.
