Brainstorms, Pictures, and Videos - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where winter weather has returned after a brief respite on Thursday. It was sunny, dry, and warm enough to ride my bike outside for the first time since the start of the year. This weekend, I'm back to skiing and teaching skiing. I hope that you have something equally fun planned for your weekend. And if you're starting a long weekend or vacation week, I hope you enjoy the extra time off. 

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. 10 Tools for Gathering Real-time Feedback From Students
2. Three Good Tools for Recording Brainstorming Sessions
3. Concise Explanations of DNS & IP
4. Two Ways to Use Pictures in Formative Assessment
5. Lumen5 - Quickly Turn Your Writing Into Videos
6. Free Shapegrams from Tony Vincent!
7. 25 Gmail Tips for Teachers and Students
