The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good morning from snowy Maine where it is going to be a great weekend for playing outside. When the sun comes up I plan to do some sledding with my kids. Later, we might do a little skiing too. But first I have this week's list of the most popular posts of the week.

Before reading the list of the most popular posts of the week, take a look at this picture in this post. That's a Compaq LTE Lite 4/25 laptop from 1994. One of my students found it in the back of a cabinet in the back of the storage closet in my classroom. We plugged it in and it works! For those who are curious, here's a PDF of the original spec sheet for the Compaq LTE Lite line of computers.

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. Three Google Sites Updates to Note
2. Google Sites as Digital Portfolios
3. Tools to Improve the Accessibility of Websites, Videos, and Slides
4. Two Neat Polling Tools That I Recently Recommended
5. How to Find Historical Comics and Create Lessons With Them
6. Watch the Evolution of Campaign Commercials on The Living Room Candidate
7. A New Version of Easy Accents for Google Docs
