Summer, Icons, and Animations - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where we've just woken up from our first backyard camping adventure! Overall, it went about as well as could be hoped for with a three-year-old and a four-year-old in a tent. I think my three-year-old now wants to live in the tent with her stuffed animals and books. Happy Father's Day to all the dads reading my blog this weekend. I hope that it's a great day for you. This week I wrapped-up my school year. I took yesterday off and next week I'll host the first session of the Practical Ed Tech Virtual Summer Camp. The first webinar is at 10am ET on Monday. You can still register this weekend to join us. These were the week's most popular posts: 1. Three Good Options for Annotating PDFs2. Four Important Padlet Updates to Note3. Five Sources of Summer Math Activities for Elementary School Students4. Sharing vs. Publishing Google Documents5.
