New Years Resolution: Increasing Collaboration in 2014

On Monday night when I was sick with the flu I decided to participate in #edtechchat on Twitter.   The focus of the conversation was reflection on the past year, and goal setting for  the upcoming year.  During this discussion several participants voiced their desire to become better about reading and commenting on blogs in the new year.  Jessica Worley contacted me after this chat about starting a TLC Group, Tweet, Like and Comment!  Please check out her blog article, for steps on how to join us on this endeavor!  I hope you will come on board and join our group!
