The Week in Review Featuring the World's Biggest Pinto Bean

Good morning from Calgary where I'm getting ready to head home after a great week during which I attended Discovery's Beyond the Textbook Forum, went hiking near Banff with Jen Deyenberg who taught me all kinds of fun facts about Canada, and I presented at the Teacher 2 Teacher conference in Bow Island, Alberta. Here's a fun fact, Bow Island, Alberta is the home of world's largest pinto bean. I saw the bean two years ago but didn't get a picture so this time I made sure to grab a picture.

As I do every week regardless of where I am in the world, I've compiled a list of this week's most popular posts. I make these lists because they provide a quick way to see what other educators were interested in and talking about this week.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. ScreenLeap - Instant Easy Screen Sharing
2. 5 Ways You Can Use Wikis
3. Create Hashtag Infographics With Visual.ly

5. WeVideo Now Offers an Android App for Collaborative Video Creation
