The Soul of a Mother

Mother Teresa of India

Happy Mother's Day. All you moms out there--new moms, stepmoms, grandmoms, greatgrandmoms. Moms not by blood but by love. Relax, enjoy, what a privilege. Go with God, sisters.

3 Types of EdTech Baggage: Toolsets, Mindsets, Skillsets

http://dmlcentral.net/3-types-edtech-baggage-toolsets-mindsets-skillsets/
