Weather, Whiteboards, and Adventure - The Month in Review

The end of February has arrived. How did the second month of the year go for you? It was a busy one for me as I did bit speaking at conferences, hosted a few webinars, did some writing that will eventually appear in a book, and planned the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp. In there I still managed to get in a good, solid workout on 25 of 28 days. Speaking of working out, have you visited Ed Tech Fitness, yet?

These were the month's most popular posts:
1. An Online Lab for Learning About Weather Patterns and Forecasts
2. Six Online Whiteboard Drawing Tools
3. A Comparison of Blogging Services for Teachers and Students
4. Ten Search Strategies Students Should Try
5. CleverPDF Offers 20 Ways to Work With PDFs in Other Formats
6. Two Image-based Search Challenges to Use With Your Students
7. How to Use Google Slides to Create Choose Your Own Adventure Stories
