One of the great things about Edumatch is that if you want to try something new, there is probably someone who can help you.

EduMatch Voxer is such a friendly group that it makes it easy to think out loud and ask "silly" questions and you never know where the conversation will go!

34:21 - Susie @shighley 1
That's Sarah: somebody mentions an idea, and she finds a way to make it happen

35:05 - Peggy George
I'm so impressed that they offer so many incredible opportunities for free--all done by volunteers who are passionate educators!

35:45 - Peggy George (Subscribe to EduMatch podcasts on iTunes)
