The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good morning from Maine where the sun is rising and it's a balmy 10F outside. This is the last weekend of my school vacation week so I'm planning to get outside to play for a bit more. I spent part of the week working on some long-term projects. But it wasn't all work all week as I did spend the first couple of days of vacation ice fishing on Moosehead lake with a group of teachers that I've known for almost twenty years now. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope that you have time to do something fun too.

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. Animate Anything With Cloud Stop Motion
2. 5 Google Slides Features New Users Should Know - Updated
3. Write Faster With These Two New Google Docs Features
4. Quickly Turn Articles Into Videos With InVideo
5. Convert PDF to Word and More
6. The Practical Ed Tech Podcast - Episode 32 - Back from the Flu
7. DNS & IP Explained
