Feeling overwhelmed by unrest in the Middle East, the economic crisis, threats of nuclear annihilation, teacher layoffs, union-busting, the firing of the Aflac duck or potential for a President Donald Trump?
Well, I’m here to spread the good news and tell you that there is something you can do to help yourself and return balance to a troubled planet. Yes, you my friend can take two minutes and vote for Gary Stager in a Tech & Learning Magazine poll!
Never heard of Tech & Learning Magazine? Nobody else has either. But, through the power of social media you can make a difference and help me win what many people refer to as the Nobel Prize for educational technology. I recently had the courage to write an article for this fantastic magazine urging readers not to buy interactive whiteboards, the magazine’s number one advertiser. Surely, that deserves my vote!
I need your help! Heck, I’m not too proud to beg for your vote!
