Hello all - I'm a high school Calculus teacher and part-time developer. I've been working on a lesson-platform that is super simple to use as an alternative to the complicated, last-decade-looking school website I've been forced to use for a while.

If you are a teacher looking for a FREE place to easily put your lessons online, you should check out www.lessonwell.com

As this is also a personal project, I'm highly interested in feedback from everyone as well.

For those in the DFW area, if you haven't joined the EdTech meetup group, you should! Our next discussion will be next wednesday (9/25) where Eric Reeves (former senator from North Carolina) will be talking about House Bill 5 and it's impact on educator and entrepreneurs. 

Find out more here: http://www.meetup.com/edtechdfw/events/135006242/

Spread the word and join the meetup!

Looking for engaging speakers to put on a "Google Apps for Education" session for our EdTech DFW meetup -

A little background - I currently teach Calculus/Engineering in Fort Worth and I also organize the EdTech DFW meetup. We are a small group right now, but aspire to grow in the mold of the other EdTech meetups around the country. 

Right now we're looking for innovative speakers/events/PD for our upcoming meetings and I think that a Google-themed session would be great (chromebook/google apps, etc.)

So my question to this community: Do you know of someone (hopefully in the DFW area) who'd be interested in putting on a session (how you use it in your classroom, etc.)?

Would love to hear of any leads!

Reminder to all you in the DFW area - the EdTech DFW Meetup is happening tomorrow night at the Dallas Entrepreneur Center (http://www.thedec.co/). Come join us for a great time. http://www.meetup.com/edtechdfw/

No charge (duh) I just ask that you RSVP so we can give the DEC a headcount beforehand. 

Thanks!

Hello all - a high school calculus and engineering teacher from TX here, wanted to share my current project with y'all -

Out of my frustration with the complexity and general bad-appearance of most teacher websites and lesson platforms I've been forced to use over the years, I've finally decided to build my own. I call it "lessonwell" and am looking for innovative teachers to jump on board, provide some feedback, and use it for their own classes.

Please give it a check, and send any feedback my way. You can use it absolutely free, and if you think this is something worthwhile please consider upgraded to support this hobby of mine! (check out the early-bird promotion at http://www.lessonwell.com/promotion)

Hey all - I'm looking for one or two more inspiring teachers to serve on an "EdTech Teacher Panel" on July 17th in Dallas. If you know of anyone who loves to talk about EdTech stuff (even it's yourself) and you are in the DFW area, please respond here! Feel free to forward this to everyone you know!

Additionally, if you just want to come check out our new meetup group, you definitely should - we are growing fast: http://www.meetup.com/edtechdfw/

For those of you out there who have considered teaching programming/coding skills online, may I suggest my personal project http://www.lessonwell.com

I'm a high school engineering and calculus teacher who just wanted a better, easier to use, dead simple lesson platform. This is what I came up with. 

For comp-sci folk, I've specifically made lessonwell the perfect place to create lessons with embedded, syntax-highlighted code blocks using my own mangled combination of Twitter bootstrap and Markdown. 

At any rate, please check it out, pass it along, or shoot back some feedback. It ain't perfect right now, but I have all summer to make it better! 

Thanks!

For you computer science teachers out there, lessonwell now makes it incredibly easy for you to create lessons with embedded code blocks - just type the code and lessonwell will format it. Period.

Check out a brief demo below or go to http://www.lessonwell.com/cs
