The Week in Review - The Best of the Web

Doing my best "Ellen impersonation."
Good evening from Maine where I'm home after a great week in North Carolina for the NCTIES 2014 conference. Thank you to everyone that came to one of my workshops or presentations this week. And an extra big thank you to folks who came to one of my presentations for the second or third year in a row. That is the biggest compliment that a speaker can receive.

This morning I stopped by EdCamp Maine. And while I couldn't stay long it was fantastic to see so many teachers their for learning on Saturday morning. In talking with the organizers I learned that 170 people were registered for the day.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Best of the Web 2014
2. Subtext & Tellagami - Two Apps to Attack Reading Comprehension
3. A Comparison of 11 Mobile Video Creation Apps
4. Seven Free Online Whiteboard Tools for Teachers and Students
5. Common Core, Book Trailers, and Three Good Tools for Creating Them
