We would like to announce the creation of our H.A.C.K. wheel of the Android OS. It is loaded with learning platforms designed for the Android operating system and Google Play for Education. Much like the Apple OS wheel and Chrome/ Web 2.0 wheel, the Android OS wheel aligns perfectly to our H.A.C.K. Model of Innovative Instruction and we hope that it adds to how you see technology being able to be effectively used in your schools and classrooms. With the creation of this wheel we now are able to offer H.A.C.K. Professional Development for any device that you may have in your schools and classrooms. Please contact us with any questions you have or to schedule professional development for your school.

Our ripples rarely leave the stream indeed. This especially rings true when it comes to technology implementation. (read more).
