Feeling Thankful? Any Spare Holiday Spirit?

18619875 Donate black stamp text on yellow Speech BubbleAsk a Tech Teacher is a small group of tech-ed teachers with a big goal: provide free and affordable resources to anyone, anywhere that integrate technology into education. It’s an ambitious goal and we rely on donations from readers like you to make that happen. Use the PayPal Donate button below or in the sidebar of Ask a Tech Teacher (aka, Structured Learning LLC–our publisher):

donateAbout this time of each year, when several of our larger bills come due, we give a shout out for help. We thought we’d share some of the costs of running Ask a Tech Teacher:

  • Site hosting–we use WPEngine–an excellent company that keeps the site up and running over 99% of the time.
  • Domain name hosting--for that, we use GoDaddy. They always take our calls, walk us through how to fix problems in terms we understand. we’re teachers, not network geeks, but they don’t hold that against us.
  • Constant and chronic techie problems–such as IPNs, security updates, plug-in updates, and so much more. Again, we’re teachers. This double geek stuff makes our heads hurt.
  • The geeky tools and programs that deliver content–like the apps we review and the programs we use for webinars.

We could sell ads, but we don’t want to clutter the pages. That’s distracting as you search out resources for your classroom. We rely on donations. As Wikipedia says in their shout-out for donations, just $3 per reader would cover the entire fundraiser in one hour (my reader base and monetary needs are smaller than Wikipedia!).
