“Will Richardson is an outstanding educator. His work has moved classrooms across America from boring, uninteresting rooms filled with the drone of irrelevant information to beehives of interactivity! Educators who attend his presentations or read his blogs gain valuable insight as to how to transform their classrooms with Web 2.0 tools and strategies. I highly recommend Will’s work and his engaging presentation style to any group or organization seeking an innovative, visionary presenter and an educator extraordinaire!”
