Week in Review - The Connections We Make

Quite possibly the worst picture of me.

Good morning from Maine where I've just returned from spending a week in Nebraska at the home of my friends Beth and Kris Still. Beth and I "met" on Twitter four years ago. She was responsible for the NECC Newbie project that got me to NECC/ ISTE in 2009. A year later I had the pleasure of meeting her husband Kris when I spoke at her school. Since then we've stayed in touch and visited whenever we can. The next time someone asks if online connections are real, the answer is yes.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. School Boards and Technology
2. The Periodic Table of Comic Books
3. Handy New Ways to Organize Files in Google Drive
4. 26 iBooks Author How-to Videos
5. Google+ Added to Google Apps for Education
6. 5 Dice - An Order of Operations Activity on iPads
7. The Global Closet Calculator - A Lesson in Interdependence
