In my BAMRadio Network EdWords blog post, Ask These Questions About Time to Evaluate Classroom Technology Integration, I suggest six questions teachers can ask about time and technology integration in their classrooms. Please share your thoughts these questions and technology integration in the comments below or tweet me at @TomEMullaney. Thanks for reading.
