RootsTech 2013 (1)
Here are some links to the handouts and other resources that were shared with us at RootsTech 2013 held at Salt Lake City, Utah from 3/21/13- 3/23/13.
For more information and other perspectives, I suggest the reader check out the following websites and blogs.
Session Syllabi available at: http://rootstech.org/downloads:  This is a large file and comes in a zip format.  Each day’s presentations are in that day’s folder.  Excellent resource!
“MindTap” - http://www.cengage.com/mindtap/ - for educating people. It is a personalized learning experience available to teachers and students.

Ewell {bj57barry@gmail.com} with RootsTech 2013 in the subject line.  He will send you three messages with tons of links and information.  One of the messages contains the link to the presentation I attended.  To help, here is a link to that presentation. - https://www.yousendit.com/download/UVJoM25EQ0MzS3J2bk1UQw Note:  This link contains four (4) presentations.  Barry added to his last message the following invitation.
