Here’s the one-time donation button, or you can find it in the Ask a Tech Teacher sidebar:

Here’s the button for a monthly donation–the price of a cup of coffee and a donut:


BTW, we’re always open to sponsors, too. We love sponsors!  If you’re an edtech company interested in helping spread Ask a Tech Teacher resources to everyone, contact us at We can add you to the sidebar, review your product, or another sponsor sort of activity.

    I want to thank you for your amazing resources! I encourage staff members to sign up for your newsletter and those that don’t I forward information to them until they finally start to listen. Please keep up the good work! Please continue to push our resources for elementary schools. We are trying to maximize the use of tech in our school through iPads.

      Thanks for your comment, Chris. I appreciate the feedback and am glad to hear how helpful the resources are for you. Let me know if you have any particular questions.

    Jacqui, I agree with Chris! I frequently forward on your emails to other faculty members and encourage others to subscribe. You have helped me more than you know over the last five years when I was a brand new teacher hired as a technology educator instead of as an English educator – the subject of my certification. Thank you for all that you do.

      Thank you for your comment, Valerie. Because my blog is more resource than collaboration, I don’t hear often enough if I’m hitting the right notes for people. You’ve reassured me!
