Slides, Mount Rushmore, and Tours – The Week in Review

Good evening from terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport where I’m waiting for a flight home after attending the BETT Show in London. It was a whirlwind trip to catch up with some friends and colleagues based in Europe while also seeing some of the new offerings of some of the ed tech industry. I am fortunate to have these opportunities to travel, but I’m always happy to be returning home to my kids who miss me (Skype just isn’t the same as being there). Before I board my flight home, I have this week’s run-down of the most visited posts of the week.

Here are this week’s most popular posts:
1. Ten Overlooked Google Slides Features
2. Geometry at Mount Rushmore – A Math Lesson
3. Ten Overlooked Google Docs Features
4. Story Cubes – Templates to Help Students Plan Stories
5. How to Add Voice Comments to Google Docs
6. Important News About Adobe Spark
7. GE Teach Tour Builder – Create Google Earth Tours for the Web

Book Me for Your Conference

I’ve given keynotes at conferences from Australia to Alaska for groups of all sizes from 50 to 2,000+. My keynotes focus on providing teachers and school administrators with practical ways to use technology to create better learning experiences for all students. I like to shine the light on others and so I often share examples of great work done by others as well as my own. Click here to book me today.
