  1. I have your book Connected from the Start. I also follow your on twitter. You are doing some amazing things with technology. I understand you were just away – showing others what you do, is there anything coming up that I might catch one of your sessions?

    Love what you do,

    1. Thanks so much, Shaun. I do have things coming up, but it depends where you live… You can email me with that info if you are uncomfortable sharing it in this space. kathyrcassidy[at]gmail[dot]com

      1. I am in Manitoba at Stony Mountain School in the Interlake School Division, just north of Winnipeg.

        I had seen you used Avatars, what program did you use to create the Avatars.
