Free technology for teachers: giraffes, stories, and bubbles

Good morning from Maine where consistent summer weather seems to be avoiding us. I write it it is cloudy and 50F! I guess we’ll be wearing sweatshirts and fleece at the graduation party we’re going to this afternoon.

This week I took a day off to take my kids to Franklin Park Zoo in Boston. We had a great time watching the giraffes, watching the gorillas and playing in some great placescapes. I hope you had a great week and have a great weekend!

This week’s most popular post was:

1. 45 canvas tutorials for teachers and students

2. World Bicycle Day Lessons
3. Unprepared Bubbles – Another fun summer science lesson

4. A quick and easy way to create your own Wordle-like game
5. Three ideas for storytelling with pictures
6. Screencasting on Chromebooks – Built-in Tools vs. Third Party Tools
7. A giraffe in our house – more fun with augmented reality
