Good morning from Maine where Morrison and I are using this weekend to get into the holiday spirit. Yesterday, we delivered some goodies to the local animal shelter and today we’ll be out on a quest to find gifts for the humans in our lives too. But before that happens I need to put together this week’s week in review.
On Tuesday of this week I had the opportunity to spend the day at the Riverdale Country School in New York City. We spent the day exploring interesting uses of Google Maps and Google Earth for all grades and content areas. On Thursday evening this week I hosted the first session of my new course Google Drive and the Common Core. I was very pleased with how it went. I’ve delivered a lot of webinars in the past for universities and other PD organizations, but this is the first time I am handling all of it on my own. There are still some seats available for the January course.
Here are this week’s most popular posts:
1. A Short Guide to Google Maps for Educators
2. 60 of the Best Websites and Apps for Teachers
3. Cargo Bot – An iPad Game About Logic
4. Poverty in American – The Living Wage Calculator
5. Take a Narrated Tour of the Solar System
6. Smithsonian and ePals Spark!Lab Invent It Contest
7. Mysteries of Vernacular Explains Nuances of English
