Hi folks - after an extended paternity/holiday break with my daughter, I'm back at work and back on the blog. I hope you all had a great holiday season.    

Next Tuesday, (January 20th, 2009 from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PST) Microsoft Solution Specialist Tony Franklin will be presenting a Teacher Tech Tuesday webinar on OneNote 2007 in the classroom. I've had the opportunity to work with Tony a few different times, including the Philadelphia School of the Future and the Freedom Writer Teacher event. Tony works extensively with the Philadelphia School of the Future and has been a proponent of OneNote and education for many years. I highly encourage you to sign up for this free webinar and engage with Tony for his presentation.    

Microsoft will also be giving a free a copy of OneNote 2007 for any teacher that views the webinar and completes the survey at the end! If you missed the last one, now's you're chance to get a copy of OneNote. More details on how you get your free copy are listed below.    

So round up as many teachers as you can and watch this webinar on Tuesday.
