Week in Review - From Flat to Flying

Good morning from Maine where signs of spring are starting to show despite the snow that is still in my yard. I've had a busy seven days since the last week in review. It started with a flat tire in the pouring rain and ended with a flight home from North Carolina where I spent three days presenting at the NCTIES conference or as Rushton Hurley called it, the Neck Ties Conference. I had the great privilege to speak to many fantastic educators and leaders in the field of educational technology. One of the highlights of the week for me was, after years of reading their works, meeting David Warlick, Tammy Worcester, and Kathy Schrock.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Khan Academy Videos Mapped to Common Core Standards
2. Is Khan Inherently Crap?
3. Bunsella Bedtime Stories - An App for Narrating Stories
4. Resources for Learning About the Iditarod
5. Use Custom HTML and Javascript in Google Sites
6. Audio Memos - A Voice Recorder for iPad & iPhone
7. 10 Awesome Android Uses & Apps for Education
