I cannot emphasize this one enough. As I am out in schools I hear things like "I need digital dice" or "I could really use a thermometer I can manipulate" "It would be nice to have base-ten blocks" - I have been blogging ed tech pieces for over a year now, and it's all on the Ed Tech Framework (connected to the HUB).
