I’m so excited to announce that my new iBook “Using QR Codes to Energize Lessons & Differentiate Instruction: Actionable Tips for Your Classroom & Beyond” is now available for pre-order!
This iBook was made to view on iPads and has tons of ideas for using QR codes to design engaging lessons that reach all learners in your classroom. It has plenty of tips and includes over an hour of video tutorials.
Pre-order today before it goes on sale September 22nd!
If you are selling your lesson plans online already or are thinking about getting started you’ll want to check out Syllabuy. Now is a great time to set up a shop on Syllabuy since sellers will pay no transaction fees and earn 100% commission on shop sales until 2015. Features for sellers include: a simple product management system, the ability to put products on sale and create coupon codes, real-time feedback on product performance, and monthly payments via PayPal.
Syllabuy is a program from FundingFactory, the nation’s largest e-waste recycling fundraiser. Although Syllabuy is still in BETA, they already have thousands of lessons, activities, worksheets and other resources in all subjects available, most of them free or very low-cost. Many of the lessons are CCSS aligned and it’s free to create an account on Syllabuy – you only pay when purchasing a resource.

I need your help!
I have submitted a proposal to SXSWedu and need your votes to help remove to the next round! The website asks you to create an account (I’ve never received spam/emails from them) and then give a thumbs up (and comment if you like) to my proposal. The votes help my fellow ADE and I move to the next round so if you have 2 minutes to spare I would greatly appreciate it!
Feel free to reach out by email, on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest to ask questions, share your favorite apps, or say hello!
Thank you for your support and have a wonderful school year! Monica
