Free technology for teachers: menus, maps and broadcasts

Good morning from West Maine where warm weather is expected to return after a few cold and rainy days. We plan to have fun with the Storyland trip to enjoy the warm weather! My kids love to go there because of all the kid-friendly rides. I like to go there because it reminds me of happy childhood memories and I like to see my kids having fun creating their own memories. How much fun do we have there? My five year old shouted, “I’m living my best life!” Time to ride the rollercoaster in Storyland last summer. I hope you have something equally fun to do this weekend. This week’s most popular post was:

1. Add dropdown menus to sentences in Google Docs
2. You may have missed the new Google Docs features

3. An interactive map of the Roman Empire

4. A great lesson for a hot spring day – how popsicles were invented
5. The National Archives will host online professional development this summer
6. They – a planning tool for new and experienced teachers
7. Broadcast Google Slides live on your students’ computers

Webinars for your school
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.
