Farewell to a friend... Gone too soon!

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that as of April 3, 2015, InfuseLearning will be no more.  Released as a free tool, they came to the realization that they could not live up to their own expectations for technology you could count on in a classroom.  Here is the announcement in their own words:  Closing Time.

In leaving us, the do suggest some alternative free tools for formative assessment in the classroom.  This Pinterest Board lists several tools you may want to consider.

Join me in wishing the folks from InfuseLearning best wishes as they move on to their next venture.  It's folks like them, who truly believe in bringing exciting, new tools into the classroom, that will make the future of education bright!

We will miss you!

And.... curtain.

Yesterday, the FCC passed a strong ruling to recognize broadband as a Title II communications service.  This is exactly the net neutrality ruling that many of us were hoping for, helping to ensure an open, free Internet.  Big cable companies wanted to limit what we could do and see online, but despite their lobbying efforts where they spent millions of  dollars, WE WON!

Use the hashtag in the picture to help celebrate and take part in this grass-roots movement to keep the Internet accessible to all!
