The Week in Review - 3300 Downloads

Good morning from Woodstock, Maine where it shaping up to be a perfect late summer day. It's not too hot, it's not too cold, and the sun is shining. In other words, it's a great morning for sitting on my deck and drinking coffee while I write. I hope that wherever you are this weekend, you have an equally relaxing weekend.

Nine days ago I released the Practical Ed Tech Handbook. Since I hit publish on that post, more than 3300 people have downloaded it. I've heard from a handful of people who have printed it give to their colleagues. That is what I hoped would happen. Helping teachers learn about the resources available to them is why I started this blog many years ago. Thank you all for helping me share.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Google Classroom Adds Calendar Integration and Other Frequently Requested Functions
