Do you have the end of the year blues? Not after listening to Seedlings, as we interview Cherrie MacInnes.Cherrie is a 3rd grade teacher who began a journey with her class and visited, by Skpye, every state throughout the year.She had no idea how to begin the journey, however, she invented a way for this project to begin, figured out the steps and with the help of her IT department, she has left the breadcrumbs for all of us to follow. Thanks Cherrie.
A huge shout out to Dave Cormier for saving our show when at the last minute our settings did not work. Also Happy Birthday to Edtechtalk, 5 years old on Saturday!
