Image Search, Posters, and Buttons – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine on the first day of September. September in part of the world is the start of fair season. I can almost smell the Oxford County Fair by just thinking about walking through the animal barns with my daughters to see the piglets, lambs, and calves. Or as my older daughter will say, “baby pigs,” “baby sheep,” and “baby cows.” I can’t wait! But that’s still a couple of weeks away so we’re going back the wildlife park to see the baby moose and baby deer this morning. I hope that you also have something fun planned for the weekend.

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. Send an email to richardbyrne (at) book me today.
