Free Technology for Teachers: Posters, Pictures, and Leftovers

Free Technology for Teachers: Posters, Pictures, and Leftovers

Good morning from Maine where yesterday it felt like winter and today it feels like spring. My family is supposed to go see the Christmas lights display at the Boothbay Botanical Gardens this evening, but the rain might dampen our plans. So we might end up spending the day making Christmas cookies. Either way, we’re going to have a fun weekend and I hope that you do too. 

This week marked the 15th anniversary of Free Technology for Teachers. On Monday I published some thoughts about what’s happened in the world of edtech, blogging, and social media over those years. That post also included a list of the ten most popular posts of all time on this blog. You can read it all here. 

On the same day that I marked the anniversary of this blog I also scheduled a workshop for an organization that reached out to me. If you’d like to have me run a workshop for your school, library, or organization in 2023 please get touch with me soon. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. C-SPAN Offers a Free Electoral College Poster

2. More Than 70,000 Pieces of ClipArt and Pictures for Students

3. Three YouTube Features Every Teacher Should Know How to Use

4. How to Add Descriptions to Google Drive Folders

5. Two Good Ways to Create Simple and Focused Websites

6. A Thanksgiving Leftovers Search Lesson and Bookmarking Tip

7. In Memory of Ed Webster – Resources for Teaching and Learning About Mount Everest
