Maybe we can make a TIEnet group resource - shared google folder, spot on wiki, or something - to collect them in. Michelle and I are doing 30 min tech sessions in elementary buildings this year during teacher prep, before/after school, so if we make a neat twitter session for example, we could post the agenda, notes, resources etc for other busy tech coaches to steal and use in their building.
