As a technology consultant I get to work/play with lots of toys such as iPads, computers and SMARTboards. However, one of the most popular toys I have on my desk has very little to do with technology. This toy is, for lack of a better label, my squishy ball. Although I use this ball for various SMARTboard activities when working with teachers, it seems to get used most by my fellow consultants and I as a stress reliever. It's fun to squish and sometimes it even gets thrown.
