Paper, Programming, and Games – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where it feels like spring this morning. The wind is blowing away the clouds of yesterday and it should be a sunny day to play outside. We’re going to put on our boots and go for a little hike this today. I hope that you do something fun outside today too. 

This week I held a follow-up Zoom meeting for folks who participated in my webinar about how to create and sell digital products. I also held a webinar for a fun little group of librarians. If you’d like to have me host a webinar for your group, please send me an email at richardbyrne (at)

Next week Rushton Hurley and I will resume our Two EdTech Guys Take Questions series, register here to join us for that free event. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:

1. Try This New Google Chrome Feature
2. Seven Sites and Apps to Help Students Learn Coding and Programming
3. – Educational Games Your Students Will Love to Play
4. A Huge Collection of Resources for Fun Phys Ed Activities
5. Spaghetti Trees and the History of April Fools’ Day
