Welcome to my wiki. I am Rich Hubbard Director of Technology for Amboy CUSD 272. The purpose of this wiki is to increase Teacher and Staff awareness about the District's Tech initiatives, Web 2.0 & 21st Century Tools and general information about technology.

I use both Mac and PC's at work and home. I am believe in the right tool for the task at hand, sometimes it is a Mac and other times it is a PC. That being said, my personal choice is the Mac.

Twitter is a big part of my PLN. Check out this website to see why I am so passionate about using twitter in our District. Take five minutes of your time to watch the video at the top of the page. Eric Sheninger Principal at New Milford High School

I am often asked how do I find time to keep current with technology, I use several tools to condense content into one location. One is my daily tech newspaper - The Rich Hubbard Daily

Another tool I use to curate information is Scoopit, The topics I follow.

I use Instapaper, a simple tool to save web pages for reading later. Instapaper

I have started using Pinterst to curate websites. Links to my boards:
