Baker's BYOD

The posts on my blog feature edtech tools that I use with my HS English classes, as well as educational events that I attend. I write about integrating technology and instructional design with a focus on applications in the English Language Arts classroom. As part of the "D" in BYOD, I periodically write about therapy dogs in the classroom; my chocolate lab and certified therapy dog, Brody, would spend the school day in my classroom with my students. I cast a wide net covering edtech integration, literature analysis, and therapy dogs, but balance the scope with specific and actionable educational practices.
