Animations, Organization, and Music - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where I'm preparing to undertake another DIY home improvement/ maintenance project. One of the perks of owning an old house is getting to develop all kinds of handyman skills that I never knew I had. For example, today I am going to attempt to put new insulation under my dining room floor boards. But before I embark on that project, I have this week's week-in-review to share with you.


Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Five Tools for Creating Animations on Chromebooks
2. A Tip for Unorganized Google Drive Users Like Me
3. Music Crab - A Cute App for Learning to Read Music
4. Three Sites That Help Students Compare the Size of Countries and States
5. Chemistry in Slow Motion
6. Updated Menus and Toolbars Coming to Google Docs and Slides
7. PuppetMaster - A Great App for Creating Animated Movies

Professional Development Opportunities
This week more people became members of the Practical Ed Tech Coaching Group and a few new people got started on Teaching History With Technology. Discounted group registration is now available for both courses.

I’ve given keynotes at conferences from Australia to Alaska for groups of all sizes from 50 to 2,000+. My keynotes focus on providing teachers and school administrators with practical ways to use technology to create better learning experiences for all students. I like to shine the light on others and so I often share examples of great work done by others as well as my own. Click here to book me today.
