Creativity and Leaf Piles - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where the sun is shining and almost every leaf in my neighborhood seems to have landed in my backyard. The only good thing about leaf removal is making big piles for my kids to jump in. They sliding down their Little Tykes slide into the piles. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope that you're doing something fun too.

This week I announced the Practical Ed Tech Creativity Conference. This is a free online event that will happen December 10th through 12th. If you're interested in presenting, please fill out the short form found at the bottom of this page. If you want to register, you can do that in two seconds right here.

1. Kami - Annotate PDFs in Google Drive
