Many of us will be moving our clocks back by one hour before we go to bed this evening. We'll get an "extra" hour of sleep because of the change. Unfortunately, sunset will also be coming earlier as a result of the clock change too. Here are three videos that explain why we change our clocks.

The Week in Review - The Orange Edition

Good morning from Free Technology for Teachers world headquarters in Greenwood, Maine. As it is in a lot of places in North America, it's hunting season here. My dog Morrison wants to remind all of you who live in rural places like we do to wear your orange if you go out in the woods. We're going out for a hike in a just bit, but first I'll share the most popular posts of the week.

These were the most popular posts this week:
1. Bibliography Templates for Google Docs
2. Creative Commons in Plain English
3. Quickly Find Images for Google Presentations
4. Spend Four Weeks in D.C. as a C-SPAN Fellow
5. One Nexus 10 Feature That Could Make It a Great Classroom Tablet
6. MIT + K12 = Educational Videos for K12 Students
7. Three Good Videos About The Electoral College
