Hello Integrating Technology colleagues,
Following yesterday's Higher Order Thinking with Technology (HOTT) webinar with Becky Shiring, I would like to welcome Becky -- and everyone -- to our follow-up discussion today, Wednesday July 11th, through Friday July 13th. The webinar was recorded, and will be available in a few weeks on the LINCS YouTube channel. There will be a LINCS announcement about that here.
We had some great questions in the webinar, some of which Becky answered but may wish to elaborate on. I have some questions, too. Whether you attended the webinar or not, your questions are welcome. Try to post them now through Friday morning.
For those who missed the webinar, here's some information about Becky Shiring, who has for some time been a member of Integrating Technology.
