The Friday Five - Week in Review and a Poll

It's a sunny and cold Friday afternoon here in Maine which means it's time for the Free Technology for Teachers week in review. This week in addition to posting the week's five most popular blog posts I am posting a poll for you to vote for your favorite blog post of the last seven days. I'll post the results of the poll next Friday.

Here are the five most popular blog posts over the last seven days.
1. 20+ Educational Alternatives to YouTube
2. Math A Tube - Video Math Help
3. Computer Tutorials in Pictures and Video
4. Six More Educational Alternatives to YouTube
5. The Grapes of Wrath - Free Full Length Movie

This week Free Technology for Teachers reached an all-time high subscriber count of 1149. Welcome to all new subscribers and thank you to everyone who has subscribed over the course of the last 51 weeks. If you're not subscribed to Free Technology for Teachers, please consider subscribing in your favorite RSS reader or via email. Subscribing just takes a minute yet it can save you time throughout the week. Subscribing in an RSS reader or via email is like having the newspaper delivered to your doorstep instead of going to the newsstand everyday.

Next week marks the one year anniversary of Free Technology for Teachers. I never imagined that this many people would read my blog when I started it last fall. It has been a fun and educational experience for me. In celebration of the first anniversary of Free Technology for Teachers and as a service to anyone who has young children on their holiday shopping list, next week my uncle, The Toy Guy, Chris Byrne will be sharing his recommendations for the top educational toys of the season. If you're an Oprah or a Regis and Kelly watcher you may have seen Chris in action.
