Changes, Chat, and Spring – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where today it’s going to snow, but tomorrow is going to sunny and will be almost spring-like. It’s going to be perfect for skiing today and riding my bike outside tomorrow. I need some time outside after a long week. It clears my head and rejuvenates me. I hope that you also get time for the same this weekend. 

This week my school changed schedules for the umpteenth time this year. There’s nothing to do but roll with the changes (cue REO Speedwagon). 

I haven’t hosted a new Practical Ed Tech webinar yet this year. That’s going to change next week when I host Five Google Earth & Maps Projects for Social Studies. If you’re curious about how you can use Google Earth and Maps in your social studies lessons for more than just “looking at stuff,” this webinar is for you. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:

1. How to Make Sure Students Aren’t Unsupervised in Google Meet Video Calls

2. Whiteboard.chat – Create Online Whiteboards You Can Share and Monitor

3. A Tour of Google Arts and Culture for Teachers

4. How to Create a Google Slides Template

5. Some of my Favorites – Creating Green Screen Videos

6. Ten Time-savers for G Suite for Education Users

7. Three Easy Ways for Students to Make Short Audio Recordings – No Email Required
