TechSteps - We need to brainstorm applying a project to a scheduled lesson or unit. Do you have any ideas for a TechSteps project that we can correlate to specific objectives? Would you like additional help? Drop me an email. We might be able to create a great lesson to be shared countywide! Thanks for all your efforts in advance! Tina
