How-to Video - Today's Meet

I've written about using Today's Meet for classroom backchannels a number of times. I've also included directions for using it in my new guide How To Do 11 Techy Things In the New School Year. Now Mark Barnes at Learn It In 5 has created an excellent how-to video showing you how to use Today's Meet.

This video is another example of the good work Mark is doing in developing videos for teachers. Check his other videos at Learn It In 5.

Week in Review - Most Popular Posts

By the time you read this I'll hopefully be catching some fish. Before I took off to go fishing, as I do every week, I compiled a list of the most popular items of the week.

Feel free to print it, embed it in your own site, and freely share it with anyone you think can use it.

These are the seven most popular items of the week:
