The Week in Review
Dave, John, Jeff, and Jen do their best with this week’s edtech news and resources. Happy Birthday to Dave!
Post-Show description: Alice, Bob and Cheryl interviewed Colleen King, the brains and passion behind Mathplayground.com, and http://thinkingblocks.com/ and her newest and self-proclaimed best program and website: http://www.MathApprentice.com
I spent one hour before the show playing at all her sites. This puts math in a whole new light. Colleen is a life long learner, has the passion that drives her ideas and is a mentor to all of us and our students. She does all this for us and our students. Let’s help spread the word.
Colleen explained how she came to be a programmer, sheer will and determination in order to share math concepts and games with students and teachers.Colleen is a do it yourselfer. She taught herself how to program, how to make math available. She had a dream and her dream is coming true, not just for her, but for all the teachers and students she is connecting with. Check out our podcast. We will be inviting her back.
