Good morning from Maine where my school vacation week is winding down with a return to some typical spring weather. Earlier this week I used a vacation day to go for a long bike ride to the Height of the Land overlooking Mooselookmeguntic Lake. It was fun for the first 60 miles, the last 24 miles were not fun. If you’re interested, you can read the whole story on Instagram. Fortunately, today is going to be warm and sunny. I’m heading out for another long bike ride. I hope that you also have something fun on your schedule for the day. 

This week I announced that I’ll be hosting the Practical Ed Tech Virtual Summer Camp again this year. There will be a session in June, one in July, and a session in August. Last year nearly 200 people joined me for one of the sessions. I hope that you’ll join me for one of the sessions this year. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:

1. Tools to Help Students Analyze Their Own Writing
2. Build Your First Google Site With the Help of These Tutorials
3. Five Tools for Staying On Task
4. Thousands of National Parks Pictures and Videos to Use in Google Earth
5. A Handful of Resources for Learning About the Start of the American Revolution
6. 48 Videos and a Poster About Critical Thinking and Logical Fallacies
