The Week in Review - Thinking About Summer

Mt. Abram at night.
Good morning from Woodstock, Maine where we may be months away from anything resembling warm weather but I'm already planning my summer schedule. As announced in a post earlier today, I am hosting the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp in July. If you're looking for a professional development opportunity in a beautiful setting, then please consider coming to Maine for a few days this summer.

In other news, earlier this week I was on a Google+ Hangout with Steve Dembo and Adam Bellow. In the course of the conversation Steve mentioned that he like my week-in-review posts. As I pointed out to him, these posts are the ones most frequently opened in emails which is why I keep writing them.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Nature Sound Map - Listen to the Sounds of Nature All Over the World
2. Read and Download 250+ Art Books from the Getty Museum
3. Linking Projects, Ideas, and Concepts with Popplet
4. TouchDevelop Helps Students Understand Programming
5. QuizBean Offers a New Option for Distributing Online Quizzes to Students
6. A Great Autism Awareness Message from a Student
7. Teachit Timer - A Slick Classroom Activity Timer
