Home Page August 7, 2012 To all my educator colleagues: As you all know, I retired in June of 2011 from my school district job as Director of Technology. I retired to spend more time learning new things to support you as you embed technology into teaching and learning in a meaningful way. I now have the time to visit districts and help with their technology-related initiatives, teach online graduate courses for the Wilkes/Discovery Masters program, and host several webinar series. Also, with this retirement, I have had the time to develop and enhance some online information sources for you. Since I started the Schrockguide in June of 1995, a lot has changed. However, I am not retired from providing you with great resources and ideas to support teaching and learning! I have moved all the support information for my presentations over to Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything, located here, to help you as you think about the practical and pedagogical uses of technology.

Paid Survey Referrals A great way to earn some extra paid survey income is through referrals. Many paid online survey companies offer some sort of referral or affiliate program. By referring a few friends, running some banner ads or creating a website and advertising it, you can supplement the amount of cash you make. Referral Types - There are basically three ways to make some extra cash by referring people to paid survey sites (and most other referral programs as well); either a straight referral, by becoming an affiliate or by joining an ad network. Straight Referral - By straight referral, I mean that the paid survey site offers a referral program. There are other methods of free advertising out there, as well as, many forms of paid advertising. Back to Top of Page Free Paid Surveys Home
