The Practical Ed Tech Podcast - Episode 24 - Vacation!

I've just published the 24th episode of The Practical Ed Tech Podcast. People are still listening to it so I keep recording it. In this week's episode I shared a new augmented reality app that I've been testing, shared some updates from Canva, and shared a new word game that you can play whenever you open a new Chrome tab. As usual I also answered a handful of questions from readers and listeners. I hope that you enjoy this episode as you head into winter break (or summer break).

Get the show notes here. Listen to the new episode here or on your favorite podcast network.

Vacation Reminder - Temporary Comment Moderation Policy

Just a quick note to remind folks that I am on a mostly Internet-free vacation until Thursday morning. I have some great guest bloggers filling-in for me all week. As awesome as the guest bloggers are, they do not have administrator privileges on the blog. Therefore, all comments that contain links will be held until Thursday morning. Likewise, my Tweets until Thursday morning are being handled by Hootsuite scheduling so if you send me a message, I won't see it until Thursday morning. I promise to get all comments moderated and messages returned as soon as possible on Thursday.

If you're also on vacation this week, as many New England schools are this week, I hope you enjoy some good rest and relaxation away from school.

Last Days of Summer...

I have one week left before I go back to school. It's been a very busy summer for me that seemed shorter than any summer break that I've ever had. Therefore, I'm taking off for a few days to go to Bar Harbor, ME / Acadia National Park. I plan to play "tourist" within my own state. As a part of this vacation I won't be bringing my netbook. But don't worry, I have plenty of posts scheduled to go live while I'm away. I just won't be able to moderate comments until Wednesday.

Questions for Graduates

Wesley Fryer has started a VoiceThread conversation for graduating seniors. The VoiceThread asks students questions about what they think their future will look like. This particular VoiceThread is for graduating seniors. If you teach or advise high school seniors have them visit this VoiceThread and share their vision with other students. I have embedded the VoiceThread below.

Applications for Education
The VoiceThread Wesley Fryer has started is intended for high school seniors, but creating a similar project with other students could be a great way to get them thinking about their future. As summer (in the Northern Hemisphere) and vacation approaches an appropriate VoiceThread would be to have students reflect on their school year and discuss what they think their next year will be like. Students may also enjoy building a VoiceThread with their classmates about the things they're looking forward to doing this summer.

Free Technology For Teachers: Vacation!

I'm going on an ice fishing vacation at Moosehead Lake in Greenville, Maine for a few days. I'll be away from the Internet until Tuesday night. Wednesday morning I'll be back with more exciting and free web applications for educators. Have a great weekend everyone. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed to the blog and all those who have sent encouraging emails, it's good to know that someone is reading and enjoying web applications as much as I am.
