This blog is off to a fantastic start as we enter November! Look back through the last few weeks of posts for ideas and resources that can help you in the classroom of the 21st century. To the right, visitors can search this blog, browse our archive, peruse the categories, or simply click on recent posts or comments that interest them most.

Later this week and month, we have some great posts planned. There are posts featuring a free online tool for the SMART Board, resource links featuring authentic learning in your own backyard, using Wordle as an instructional tool, and an inspirational video about what motivates us. The rest of November is loaded with even more fantastic resources and teaching ideas.

In case you haven’t noticed, the eMINTS National Center is expanding our efforts to get the word out about the great work our staff and the teachers we serve do every day. This blog is just one way in which that effort comes to life. We’ll continue to post great ideas and innovations in teaching and technology on Networked Teaching & Learning.

In addition to the blog, be sure to join our Facebook group for the latest information regarding eMINTS as well as news of our teachers’ continued success. This group can also be a great way to connect with other eMINTS teachers and trainers.

Finally, I have set up a Twitter account to help get the eMINTS message out there to the Twitterverse. Follow me at @Zac_eMINTS and stay current on all things eMINTS related.

You too can participate in these efforts. Besides joining the Facebook group and following my Twitter feed, you can submit a post for this blog. We would love to have the input of our teachers and friends in the educational technology world. Simply follow this link to our Google Form and fill in the appropriate information. You can type your post directly into the form or copy and paste from another location.

In the meantime, check out what we’ve posted last week:
