Kim Cofino 21st Century Learning Presentations

Kim Cofino shared her 21st Century Presentations for a middle/high school staff profesional development. The presentations were focused on three facets of education, the learners, the educators and the classroom. Kim Cofino's blog was the first educational blog I read when starting my journey on learning about educational technology integration.
