The Week in Review – Ducks in the Desert

Good evening from the Free Technology for Teachers World Headquarters in Woodstock, Maine where I’ve just returned from a quick trip to Phoenix for the Grand Canyon University Core Academy. At the GCU Core Academy Tony Vincent and I facilitated a day-long workshop on using technology in project based learning. Thank you to GCU, Alicia and Mike Roberts, and all of the active participants who made the day possible.

In case you’re wondering about the “ducks in the desert,” I snapped this picture outside of restaurant in Phoenix because I was surprised to see a mallard in the desert.
