    This was a very timely post. I have recently been discussing technology integration with the art teacher at my school. She would like to incorporate more tech but is at a loss as to how to go about it. The slide presentation will be very helpful in generating ideas. I will also be encouraging her to subscribe to Camille’s wiki. PS: Our conversations have also been a good opportunity to talk about TPACK.
