Question Types, Loom & a Swiss Army Knife

OCTOBER 2017 UPDATE

Hi Engaging Friends, 

It's officially fall according to the calendar, the weather is finally getting here, and that means one thing around here...it's fall conference time! 

We've already been making conference rounds in September, but we're looking forward to the KSDE Annual Conference in Wichita, Kansas, as well as ITEC in Des Moines, Iowa, this month and starting off next month with the Nebraska Fall Ed Tech Conference in Kearney, Nebraska.
