The Month in Review - The Most Popular Posts in July

It's hard for me to believe that it's the last day of July. It feels like just last week I was hosting end-of-year Google Meet sessions with my students. Now I'm starting to think about the first day of school that is less than a month away. That's why I'm going to have a few days offline next week to recharge my brain and my enthusiasm. I hope that you've had or will have a similar opportunity before school starts.

As I do at the end of every month I've compiled a list of the ten most read posts over the last 30 days. Take a look and see if there is something useful or interesting that you missed.

These were the most popular posts in July:
1. Use Whiteboards in Google Meet Without Screensharing
2. 7 New Google Meet Features for Teachers
3. Convert Handwritten Notes Into Google Documents
4. How to Use Kahoot With Google Classroom
5. 5 Ways to Make Whiteboard Instructional Videos in Your Web Browser
6. Seven Ideas for Flipgrid Activities
7. 5 Google Classroom Features You Might Have Overlooked or Forgotten
8. How to Make a Digital Bookshelf in Google Slides
9. How to Create Your Own Online Board Game
10. How to Work With PDFs in Google Classroom

Back to School PD Opportunities
