Kristin and Joe Merrill share a passion for infusing EdTech into their Fourth and First Grade classrooms. Together, they have a combined 20+ years of teaching experience, where they collaborate to create engaging lessons that turn into memories for their students. Even though they teach different grades, they share one common goal: learning needs to be interactive. This mindset drove them to write the books: The InterACTIVE Class and Flipgrid in the InterACTIVE Class (Elevate Books EDU), and put a new spin on traditional strategies to help implement technology that meets the needs of all students.
