Free technology for teachers: badges, takeouts and dubbing

Good morning from Maine where the sun is shining and it may rise above 60F for the first time in a long time. We are going to play outside with our Tinkergarten class, ride bikes and maybe even do some garden work. Our dogs will enjoy lounging in the sun. I hope you have some fun plans for your weekend.

This week I hosted a webinar for a large group of British Columbia teacher-librarians. If you would like me to host a webinar for your group, please send me an email richardbyrne (at)

This week’s most popular post was:

1. The new Chrome Web Store badge can help you choose better extensions
2. More Adobe Spark options
3. School changes after this year? Use Google Takeout before leaving
4. It’s Patriot Day! Resources for learning about the beginnings of the American Revolution
5. Three great ways to create online exit ticket activities
6. Pickles, popcorn, and more food science
7. I dubbed my video about how to create a professional development series

Spring and summer webinars
I run professional development webinars throughout the year. I would host a free one-hour webinar for any school or group that purchases ten or more copies of 50 Tech Tuesday tips.
