Since it’s still National Poetry Month… say hello to Word Mover, a free app which helps students get started writing poems (and short stories). Learn more in this posting, from last weekend, at FreeTech4Teachers.
We’re back! I forgot entirely about posting the week after March Break, and since then I’ve been so busy I just completely forgot each of the following two Monday mornings. I had Poetry in Voice, and then Great Soup on my mind to the exclusion of all else on each of those successive Mondays.
I’m back at the cottage this weekend, in my happy place relaxing in the warmth and the sunshine, and realised – with quite a jolt yesterday – that I hadn’t posted here for a couple of weeks. I have a remedy however!! I have – why only now? – made myself a calendar alert reminder for Sunday’s. My mind is not the steel trap it used to be. Hopefully that’ll keep me on track.
But I digress…
Please follow this link to find this week’s recommended App: Google Product Updates. I draw your attention to two locations on the web.
- First a posting from my favourite EdTech guy, Richard Byrne at Free Tech for Teachers.
- Second, a Google Slide Deck – internal to the Digital Lead Learner (DLL) community within the TDSB which is a group I am a member of. You can only access this file is you are logged in through the TDSB network.
There is some overlap between these postings. Straying from my usual format in these alerts, I’d like to comment on a couple of these items. You can find my thoughts – for what they’re worth – in this shared Google Doc.
