Let's Take A Virtual Field Trip....Anywhere Around The World With These Amazing Experiences, Apps and Websites!
Hagan and I talked about the day over the weekend. We thought about how lucky we were to have such a special day and how awesome it would be to have more days at school like that one.
Today with so much access to technology, networking tools, and innovation anything is possible and we can take our students so many places around the world without leaving our library or classroom.
