Pins, Maps, and Grids - The Week in Review

Good morning from Florida where we're visiting family for Christmas. Flying with two toddlers was a "fun" new experience. A couple of fun iPad apps, a pair of toddler headphones, and lots of snacks made the experience go relatively smoothly for everyone involved including the passengers near us. If you're traveling this week, I hope that it goes well for you. And to all of you who are on vacation for the next couple of weeks, enjoy it!

These were the week's most popular posts:

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.
