The Week in Review – The Most Popular Posts

Good morning from Maine where my kids are still basking in the glow of Santa’s visit yesterday. We have a full day of unplanned fun ahead of us. I hope that you also have a fun ahead of you. 

I didn’t write or publish any blog posts yesterday and I won’t be writing anything new next week. I always take the last week of the year off from writing new blog posts. Next week I’ll be re-running some of the most popular posts that I published in 2020. Speaking of popular posts, take a look at this week’s list below. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. My Current Hybrid Classroom Arrangement and Equipment
2. How to Create Your Own App With the MIT App Inventor
3. My Two Go-to Places for Free Sound Effects and Music
4. Quickly Create Polls and Quizzes in Google Meet With Edu-pal
5. Best Job Ever – National Geographic Stories About Interesting Jobs
6. Vintage Travel Posters and Google Earth
7. Five Ideas for Online Breakout Room Activities
