Week in Review – The MERLOT Awards

Good morning from rainy Maine where I’m getting ready to head out on a trip to Iowa. On Monday morning I’ll be speaking in Iowa City then coming home for the Maine Google Apps Summit (tickets are still available). Please come and say hello if you’re at either event.

Yesterday, I was surprised by the arrival of a package containing a plaque for the 2012 MERLOT Classics Award. MERLOT (a program at California State University) recognized me and eleven others for developing online resources that help educators. This recognition would not happen without all of you that read and share the posts you find on Free Technology for Teachers. Thank you.
