Free Technology for Teachers: History, Book Reporting, and the Great Outdoors

Good morning from Maine where a light drizzle starts a damp weekend. Despite the weather we will have fun in our Tinkergarten class this morning because exploring nature is always fun. I hope you have some fun plans for your weekend.

This week I announced that I would be hosting Teaching history with technology In June. This proved to be the most popular post I wrote throughout the week. If you teach history, I hope you will join me in the course.

This week’s most popular post was:

1. Teaching history with technology – Online courses starting in June
2. Videos for teaching and learning about Memorial Day
3. Homestead law and a research prompt
4. Five Google Earth activities to keep kids interested in the outdoors
5. You may have missed the new Google Docs features
6. Classroom Posters – Rules of Citizen Conversation
7. Book Reporting Alternative – A post inspired by my daughter

Webinars for your school
I run professional development webinars throughout the year. I will host a free one-hour webinar for any school or group who purchases ten or more copies of 50 Tech Tuesday tips.
