Writing Checkers, Images, and Rain - The Week in Review

Good morning from soggy Maine where the deluge of rain has canceled my plans for playing outside this morning. So I'll settle for riding my bike on an indoor trainer. It's not the most fun way to exercise, but it is effective. Wherever you are this weekend I hope that you get time to do something fun.

This week I wrapped-up two online professional development courses on Practical Ed Tech. Next week I'm hosting two new online PD opportunities. Those are Video Projects for Every Classroom and Google Forms & Sheets for Beginners.

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. Supercharge Student Self-Editing Skills with this Writing Checker for Google Docs
2. 13 Alternatives to Google Image Search - Chart
3. 11 Halloween Lesson Resources
4. 5 Good Places to Find Public Domain Video Clips
5. 10 Good Resources for Math Teachers and Students
6. How to Insert Equations and Special Characters Into Google Documents
7. 700 More Writing Prompts from Make Beliefs Comix

Online PD Starting on Monday
In November I'm hosting three online professional development opportunities. Those are Video Projects for Every Classroom, Google Forms & Sheets for Beginners, and Teaching History With Technology. Click here to learn more about all three opportunities.

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.
