Illinois Computing Educators

What is ICE

I thought I would write a Blog about are next-door neighbors Illinois Computing Educators. Last March I took a trip with some other educators to Ohio Department of Education to find out what Ohio was doing as it relates to consolidated network centers and also there state wide computer network. I think it is very useful to-do site visits to other schools and state to see what is happening around us. I have learned a great deal from these experiences. I would encourage you to make appoint to visiting your next-door school district or state to see what innovative ideas that they may have to share with you.
