Tech Tools Suggestions:

Meant to showcase a few tools facilitators may want to use with their classrooms.  Please go here.

What technology can we use to connect?

Anything that you have access to.  One of the strengths of the project is that you do not need to use a specific type of technology to be a part of it, in fact, you can even choose to not use technology and use regular mail to connect with someone.  All that matters is that you connect with someone.
