The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good morning from Maine where it's cold and dark at the moment. Fortunately, sunshine is in the forecast and we're going to play outside in some fresh air after a day of being stuck inside because of sleet and rain. There's nothing worse than a sleeting, raining day during school vacation week. But I probably shouldn't complain as we did have a beautiful day for Christmas. Overall, it has been a good vacation week. If you're on school vacation this week, I hope that you're having a good one too.

This week I announced that I'm offering a new section of Teaching History With Technology starting in January. I've updated the course for 2020 to include a section on making your own history apps. The course starts on January 8th. You can get more information about it here.

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. My Favorite New & Updated Tools in 2019
2. Burning Vocabulary - A Chrome Extension for Expanding Your Vocabulary
3. How to Add Alt Text to Images in Google Documents
4. How to Add & Edit Google Sites Image Carousels
5. Word Game - A Simple Game Vocabulary Game
6. Boclips - Millions of Ad-free Educational Videos
7. Two Easy Ways to Share Google Forms Without Google Classroom

I'll come to your school in 2020! 
2020 will be my tenth year of speaking at schools and conferences. Send me an email at richardbyrne (at) to learn more about how we can work together.
