Welcome to Your Chequamegon Technology Resources Wiki!


The Purpose


Individually researching and collecting educational technology software and products isn’t always practical.
That is why I developed this Wiki Spaces site. Hopefully this site will allow you to quickly narrow down the educational information that will make a difference to your students’ learning and your workload.

Attending educational conferences are not always practical.
Attending conferences can be costly and time consuming. We do know that making contacts and finding that educational technology strategy that will make a difference to student learning can be invaluable. That is why I attempted to capture some of the highlight of the recent conferences and trends in this Wiki site.

The time spent by teachers searching for the “just right” product can be disappointing.
The time spent searching the web, discovering the products potential and then instructing students, can be time consuming. That is why collaborating with others make sense. Sharing information through this Wiki should save us from the frustrations of wasting time.
