Good morning from Maine where it is going to be another gorgeous spring day. We’ve been lucky to have a bunch of nice days this week. My family has been soaking up every minute of nice weather by riding bikes, cleaning out garden beds, and generally playing outside as much as we can. And that’s what we’re going to do today. I hope that you also have some fun things planned for your weekend.
This week I hosted Intro to Teaching History With Technology. If you missed it, you can watch the recording and see the slides here. That webinar was an introduction to my full Teaching History With Technology course that begins on Tuesday. You can register for that course here.
As I mentioned last week, I’m starting to put more blog posts on my other site, Practical Ed Tech. I’m doing that because all of my blog posts on Free Technology for Teachers are getting scraped (stolen) by shady websites faster than I can keep up with. I simply don’t have enough time in my day to file all of the DMCA notices with hosting companies (some of which don’t care anyway) that it takes to shut down those sites. That’s why you’ll see that my week-in-review lists now include some posts from Practical Ed Tech.
These were the most popular posts of the week:
1. TeacherMade Adds More Features to Make Your Online Lessons Better
2. How to Move from Google Photos to Amazon Photos
3. Activities for National Poetry Month
4. Intro to Teaching History With Technology – Webinar Recording
5. Two New Google Workspace Features for Students – Including Saving Google Forms in Progress!
6. Everything You Need to Know to Create Quizzes With Microsoft Forms
7. Five Collections of Historical Maps
- Ten Search Strategies Students Need to Know
- A Crash Course in Making & Teaching With Video
- A Crash Course in Google Earth & Maps for Social Studies
- The Practical Ed Tech Newsletter comes out every Sunday evening/ Monday morning. It features my favorite tip of the week and the week’s most popular posts from Free Technology for Teachers.
- My YouTube channel has more than 35,000 subscribers watching my short tutorial videos on a wide array of educational technology tools.
- I’ve been Tweeting as @rmbyrne for fourteen years.
- The Free Technology for Teachers Facebook page features new and old posts from this blog throughout the week.
- And if you’re curious about my life outside of education, you can follow me on Instagram or Strava.
