Phys Ed, Notes, and Updates – The Week in Review

Good afternoon from sunny Paris, Maine. The summer is passing too quickly now as evidenced by the sudden reappearance of “back to school” commercials on television and on the Internet. If you’re in the northern hemisphere like me, I hope that you’re enjoying the summer as much as you can. To that end, this week I took a day off to take my daughters to their favorite place, the Maine Wildlife Park where they were able to see three fawns get hand fed.

The most popular posts of the week:
1. Dozens of Apps for Physical Education
2. Five Google Product Updates for Teachers to Note
3. Knowt – Quickly Turn Notes Into Practice Quizzes
4. Great New Features Added to Flipgrid
5. Seven Microsoft Product Updates for Teachers to Note
6. ClassHook Gets a New Look
7. How to Use the Read-aloud Function in Microsoft Edge

Live PD in August!
