10 EdTech Things I'm Thankful For

by SBP

[cross-posted from Sanderling]

  1. Tech made for educators by educators. This is the essential piece.

  2. Beta testers. You are all Chuck Yeagers to me.

  3. An amazing team of teachers and techies here at An Estuary. Without a great team, it wouldn't be worth the time to do this stuff.

  4. Problems I never thought I'd face. Problems make you think. Thinking makes you smarter. Or at least thinking helps you make smarter decisions.

  5. Edcamp. Because our experience working with Edcamp organizers/teachers this year has been awesome. You are one of the greatest organizations on Earth. Viva EdcampBmore!

  6. Teachers. Because teachers aren't afraid to tell you what they think. You have always been my heroes and I am thankful for everyday I've ever had the chance to serve in a classroom as one of your peers.

  7. Edtech partners. Especially eduClipper and Edmodo. Thank you for being awesome. We owe you extra cranberry sauce. And pie.

  8. Critics. You have no idea how much you mean to me. I am nothing without you. Keep it coming.

  9. Time. Sanderling is still in its infancy. We haven't even started gussying up the frontend. But we want to get this right and not just make it look pretty. So we are taking our time on all of the things you don't see. This will make all of the difference in the end.

  10. Fearless supporters. You want to see fear in people's eyes? Tell them you want to use their money to build a social network for professional development. Thank you to all of the fearless supporters who have supported us over these first several months.

Now, let's get some turkey.
