Tech-Friendly Lesson Plan Inspiration & Resources for Every Classroom
Hi! I'm Monica.
My goal: To save you time in the classroom this school year by making EdTech easier for busy educators like you.
I’m a former classroom teacher and now spend my time sharing EdTech tips, strategies and activity ideas to make technology integration easier in your classroom.
Whether we’ve met at a conference or special event, you’ve followed along with my EdTech tips for years, or simply stopping by for the first time today, I’m so glad you’re here!
'Monica's knowledge of the intersection between pedagogy and technology is top-notch'
“We have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Burns for both regional workshops and conference keynotes. Her facilitation style is both reassuring and welcoming for all who work with her, and her knowledge of the intersection between pedagogy and technology is top-notch. Her message and vision, that our profession will recognize that we have to deeply understand the purpose of implementing a technology tool before we utilize it (the idea of focusing on tasks before apps), is a foundational one for all at this time.”
– Fred Ende, Director of Curriculum & Instructional Services, PNWBOCES
