Geography, Docs, and PowerPoint – The Month in Review

Good evening from Maine where the sun has set on the month of November, 2021. It was a busy, but good month for me. I hope that it was a good one for you as well. 

As I do every month, I’ve compiled a list of the most popular posts of the last thirty days. Take a look and see if there’s something new or interesting that you missed in November. This month’s list includes some cool PowerPoint tricks, some handy Google Docs updates, and a bunch of resources for teaching geography lessons. 

These were November’s most popular posts:
1. My Big List of Activities and Resources for Geography Awareness Week
2. Three Updated Google Docs Features
3. Five Helpful PowerPoint Features You Might Be Overlooking
4. ClassPoint – Turn PowerPoint Into an Interactive Teaching Tool
5. Take a Look at Your Google Docs Activity Dashboard
6. How to Create a Random Name and Group Picker
7. It’s That Time Again…
8. Display a Timer With a Google Document
9. My Top Three Tools for Creating Audio Slideshow Videos
10. TinyTap – Create Your Own Educational Games in Your Browser
