I am going to be a presenter at a conference about technology in the
classroom, and my topic is "Social Networking and the Art Classroom."
I need your help if you have a few minutes to fill out a quick survey.
Please send your answers to me off-list : firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance! The more data I get from you, the more I can brag
about how technologically-advanced we art teachers really are!
*grin* Actually, I hope to get more art teachers in my area involved
in online networking, too. I believe that I am a better teacher
because of it, and am astounded that more of my peers aren't
benefitting from all the wonderful info that can be found through this
email list and other online networking groups and sites.
