    • Matt, I love your site! Need to spruce mine up. I like the new Google Sites (been using Classic Google Sites), but it seems a bit limited. What do you use for your Ditch That Textbook site? Did you design it yourself? I hope you do not mind, I will be presenting and sharing some of your blogs at our next teacher tech training in Feb! Keep up the good work, I find your passion for educational technology to be exuberant!
