-Leo Tolstoy, War and peace
Welcome to the blog page for Mr. McDaniel's website. As with any good lesson plan, I feel compelled to provide a rationale for this blog, so, compelled I am so shall I provide. The rationale of this blog is to provide fellow educators looking for ideas in their classroom. I trend towards writing about technology in education because I consider it to be my muse to a degree. I was gifted with the opportunity to teach in a small classroom for five years with an abundance of laptops/tablets and as such tailored my approach towards maximizing these resources, as I am sure all educators seek to do. I do hope to provide some insight for the small, rural classroom teacher and the large metropolitan one, and perhaps everyone in between. I am not a spokesman for any particular app, website, or company; just a teacher who enjoys the diverse set of tools the current education atmosphere floats so effortlessly in front of us.
