The Week in Review - Leaves Everywhere!

Good evening from Maine where the leaves that are still on the tree are beautiful. The leaves on the ground, however, are just a nuisance that I had to spend all morning moving into piles for removal. As I shared earlier on Facebook, my record with small engines is not good as evidenced by my leaf blower spontaneously stopping a few times. It's a good thing that I don't rely on lawn equipment to make my living. Tomorrow, it's going to rain so I'll take a break from the chores to enjoy another fall tradition, watching the Patriots play.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. How to Prevent Plagiarism in Online Learning: Unicheck and Google Classroom
2. Hyperdocs: Create Interactive Google Docs
3. Padlet Now Has Voting and Grading Tools
4. History of Hashtags and How Teachers Can Use Them

7. Using Classcraft for Gamified Motivation and Formative Assessment

On Monday afternoon I am hosting a webinar about formative assessment. And on Wednesday Teaching History With Technology will start.
