Been a very busy month so far. The state of Kentucky is transitioning all Districts to Live @EDU email and part of my job is training teachers at several schools on the new email system and several of its features. So my blog posting will be rather limited over the next couple weeks. So until that time, here is a recap of some links I received via Twitter during the month of May.
