Fun Affiliations
I endorse all the below without reservation!


DEN Star - Shining Bright since 2012
I've been accused of not only drinking the DEN Kool-Aid but manufacturing the stuff! Hands down, Discovery Education is the one education resource that I simply cannot live without. WELL beyond videos, Discovery Education brings images, sound effects, songs, and so much more to teachers everywhere. For the small annual subscription, teachers get more than a resource; they become part of the best educator network around!

Ever used Camtasia? Remember Jing? My good friends at TechSmith have been creating amazing products for educators longer than I have been in the field! One of the few companies that reach out and truly listen to educators for ideas and feedback, these guys really have it figured out. One of the very first products I install when I get a new machine.  

Haiku Deck
In every presentation, I strive to make people think and engage with the content. No tool makes that as easy or sleek as HaikuDeck. Besides providing a fantastic product, the innovation team reaches out and engages in all forms of social media. It's always a highlight of my day when they call on me to help them out. 

Google Apps for Education
Without apology, I work in a Google Apps for Education district complete with a 1:1 Chromebook deployment. Beyond using the product daily, I've become a Google Certified Trainer and share the Google goodness with other districts.
