Enjoy the #AppMadness13 !

A couple of weeks ago one of my edtech buddies Brad Wilson came up with a great idea and invited me to help make it a reality. For the next three weeks we will be counting down our own version of March Madness, except this one has a nerdy twist to it. This is App Madness where we pit 32 free educational iPad apps against each other to see which is the champ.

On March 14th we kicked off with a live selection show.

We unveiled our bracket with the help of Jennifer Bond and Autumn Laidler.

Click and print your bracket here.

You can participate by using the #AppsMadness13 hashtag on Twitter to give your picks but also be sure to visit Brad's Blog to keep up to date with the latest developments.

Come Meet 6 MACUL featured speakers at Coral Gables

Instead of a March lunch and learn, I am hosting (from 3:30 to 5:00 on Tuesday March 19) this special opportunity to hang out with six feature speakers from the upcoming MACUL conference in Detroit.

Jon Corippo, Will Kimbley, David Malone, Dave Childers, Sean Williams, and Chris Scott are West Coast educators from CUE, MACUL's sister organization in California, who are road tripping across country to present at the conference.

You don't have to be heading across the state to catch some of the magic. The group will be making a stop at the Annex coffee shop in Saugatuck that is part of the Coral Gables entertainment complex.

Come grab some coffee or a soft drink and hang out with this dynamic band of guys. Talk tech or just enjoy a little after school respite with colleagues from around the area.
