Design a School





This week in my intro to educational technology class we are doing a project where we will design an innovative school based on what we have learned in the course so far! I am so excited to do this because design and crafting is my thing…. I started sketching last night and it opened up a whole world of possibilities! My biggest goal is going to be to just do what the assignment asks and get it done in time ….


I wonder if there will be extra credit if I add glitter.
