There is never a Classroom 2.0 LIVE webinar that goes by that someone doesn't say "How can we find funding for technology in our classrooms?" We are thrilled to have Shelly Terrell back with us to share her favorite tips, tools and resources to help us be creative as we search for funding sources. Following her presentation we will have a short "open mic" conversation facilitated by Paula Naugle for participants to share their best funding tips so come prepared to take the mic to share with us!
