Posters, Rhythm, and Joy – The Week in Review

Good morning from Salt Lake City International Airport where I’m waiting for a flight home. Yesterday, had the pleasure of speaking at Mountain Heights Academy where I gave a keynote titled Using Technology to Bring Joy Into Teaching. After more than two years of giving virtual presentations, it was great to give an in-person presentation again. 

Speaking of presentations, next week I’m hosting a free webinar titled Get to Know Your Students Through Tract. Learn more about it and register here. And on August 30th I’m hosting a webinar for everyone who has recently purchased a copy of my eBook, 50 Tech Tuesday Tips

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. Icebreakers and Exit Tickets – 30 Questions

2. Ten Popular Back-to-School Tutorials for Teachers

3. How to Design and Print Classroom Posters Using a Standard Printer

4. Free Email Etiquette Posters

5. Kikori Offers Free Morning Meeting Planners and SEL Lessons for All Ages!

6. An Old Story About Digital Badges and Why Kids Like Them
