    Ted's Instructional Technology Tip of the Week:

    Santa Hat

    With holiday break approaching quickly, Santa is packing up the sleigh and getting ready for his big night!

    If you want to follow him on his trip around the world, go to www.noradsanta.org.  

    This website, sponsored by The North American Aerospace Defense Command will follow Santa wherever he goes and will let you know when he will be in your area of the globe.  

    Another cool website to consider for all things Santa is https://santatracker.google.com/village.html.  

     

    Google uses the power of Google Earth to track Santa and provides lots of online holiday activities.  Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
