Week in Review - A New Book Project

Good morning from Maine. I hope that everyone had a great week of teaching and learning. As I do every week I've compiled a short list of this week's most popular posts. If you're looking for some new resources to explore before watching the Super Bowl this weekend (go Pats!) check out this week's most popular posts.

Before you jump to the list, I would like to share with you the new book project that I've embarked on with Steve Hargadon and Chris Dawson. Earlier this week we announced the Classroom 2.0 Fifth Anniversary Book project. We have already had a great response from some well-known members of the educational technology community. But we'd like to emphasize that the call for submissions is open to any educator who would like to share his or her best practice with a larger audience. Contributing to the Classroom 2.0 Fifth Anniversary Book could be an excellent way to have your ideas read by a large audience.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. The Faculty Project
2. A New Google in Education Ebook and Website
3. Oolone - A Visual Search Engine that I Can Now Recommend
4. 29 Days of Android Apps for Teachers and Students
5. A New Google+ Safety Center for Teens, Parents, and Educators
6. Announcify - A Great Text to Speech App
7. Learn How to Build a Search Engine
