Guests, Snow, and Feedback - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where we've had two small snowstorms this week. They haven't been big snowfalls, but they have produced enough snow that all the leaves I didn't rake won't be discovered again until spring. On the upside, ski season is here and I'm looking forward to getting my oldest daughter on skis this winter.

This week I hosted a dozen guest bloggers. I hope you enjoyed their posts as much as I did.

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. Edji - A Great Tool for Literacy and Critical Thinking
2. Is Your Feedback Really Effective? - This Google Docs Add-on Will Tell You
3. CoRubrics - An Add-on to Facilitate Assessment Among Students
4. Build a Body - An Interactive Biology Lesson
5. 7 Tips for Moving from Decorating to Designing Classrooms
6. A Digital Differentiation Model
7. Apps Day - A Great Way to Learn About Apps

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.
