Volumes of information here, as I wanted to direct my K-12 inservice students here but at first look they were cognitively overwhelmed. If the information was less "clicks" away, navigation could be improved. Also, some links not operable.

Technical Remarks:

Changing to a matrix display of sorts could help. The tools and examples are valuable, but with the goal of reaching out to teachers to integrate technology, it almost reinforces the difficulties and challenges they are fearful of.
