Edutopia, the educational magazine started by the George Lucas Foundation, has a focus on creative educational practices that often involve the use of technology.  While I do not subscribe to the magazine, I do subscribe to their e-bulletins.  They are offering their latest classroom resource guide highlighting new solutions for connecting home and school in order to improve student learning and success.  Click here to download: http://www.edutopia.org/home-to-school-connections-guide
