"My eCoach has helped me realize how much more powerful the teaching of standards can be when technology is used as a tool to get and keep my students engaged. Over the past year, I have been working with My eCoach to create and develop technology based projects that help my students look at and use the core 6th grade standards fractions, decimals, and proportional reasoning - in a real-world context!"
