Back to School and Back to Blogging.

It was great to get together again today to get geared up and inspired for a new year of blogging and learning. It was great to collaborate about math ideas and to learn about the Digital Human Library. We also set up some partnerships with same grade classes to read and comment on each other's blogs. We are planning to compare data and interact back and forth.

Another great day of learning!
