Copyright, Handbooks, and Goals - The Week in Review

Good morning from Vermont where in a few hours I'll be riding in my last bike race of the year, The Hibernator. I still have fitness goals to reach this (riding 7,500 miles in 2021 is the big one), but this is my last event of the year and it looks like the weather is going to be a typical northern New England mix of clouds, drizzle, and a large temperature swing during the day. It should be fun! I hope that you have something fun planned for your weekend as well. 

Before I head out on my bike I have this week's list of the most popular posts of the week to share with you. Take a look and see if there's something new or interesting that you missed during the week. 

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. Get Your Free Copy of The Practical Ed Tech Handbook
2. Transcribing Early Copyright Applications
3. The Science of Cake! - And 83 Other Food Science Lessons
4. Ten Skills Students Can Learn from Google's Applied Digital Skills Lessons
5. Five Genius Hour Activities With Tract - Students Teaching Students
6. Taskade - A Complete Project Planning Solution for Teachers and Students
7. What Does Indigenous Mean? - And Why Some States No Longer Celebrate Columbus Day
