Free technology for teachers: writing, typing and virtual tours

Good morning from Maine where fog and light rain are making less time than an ideal morning. We have the last Tinkergarten class of the season and we were expecting some nice weather. We just have to wear our rain gear and have fun in the rain. I hope you have a fun weekend wherever you are.
