Week in Review - It's Getting Chilly

Good morning from Maine where it feels like we've turned the corner toward winter. Earlier this week I heard a rustling in my bedroom then walked in to find my dog Max curling himself into a blanket. The arrival of cold weather means that we are firmly into the school year.

This week I visited Bismarck, ND and spoke at the Title I and Special Education Conference there. Thank you to all of you who came to my sessions and Tweeted nice things about my presentations.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Create Flashcards from Google Spreadsheets
2. Take a Sneak Peek at Socrative 2.0
3. Money 101 - A Crash Course in Personal Finance
