Google Classroom, Jeopardy, and Scratch - The Week in Review

Good evening from Paris Hill, Maine where I'm home after a week on the road in which I facilitated professional development for teachers in Kansas and Illinois. Next week I'll be in Missouri. If you would like to have me visit your school in the new school year, please get in touch. I only have two openings left for 2018, but I have more availability in 2019. Speaking of the new school year, I hope that those of you who started school this week had a great start to the year!

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. Two New Google Classroom Features Available to Everyone
2. How to Create a Jeopardy-style Game in Google Slides
3. A Free Presidential Timeline Poster for Your Classroom
4. 56 Examples of Using Scratch Across the Curriculum
5. Add Music to Play Continuously in a Google Slides Presentation
6. How to Record Audio in Google Slides
7. Take a Look at Microsoft's Free Hands-on STEM Lesson Plans and Projects

Only Two Days Left!
As I write this, I only have two days left in my 2018 workshop calendar. If you would like to have me lead a professional development day at your school in November or December, please get in touch ASAP. I can be reached at richardbyrne (at) freetech4teachers.com - more information is available here.

Book Me for Your Conference
I’ve given keynotes at conferences from Australia to Alaska for groups of all sizes from 50 to 2,000+. My keynotes focus on providing teachers and school administrators with practical ways to use technology to create better learning experiences for all students. I like to shine the light on others and so I often share examples of great work done by others as well as my own. Send an email to richardbyrne (at) freetech4teachers.com book me today.
