Adventures in Badging
In Adventures in Babysitting, Elisabeth Shue was stranded in the city with the children she was babysitting. Her night was filled with adventures and new experiences. For me, that’s every day in high school. My challenge, encouraging teachers to step out and try new things with technology in their classrooms. It's been an adventure worth having, one you can easily replicate.
