Free Technology for Teachers: Checklists, Chatbots, and Badges

Hello from Maine where a steady drizzle offers some respite from the drought conditions we have been experiencing for a few weeks. Glad to have the rain although it makes cycling a little less fun than on a sunny day. Speaking of biking, this week was the first week I really felt like I was on summer vacation. I recorded a few good bikes this week. Hope you are also enjoying a nice summer break.

This week I haven’t hosted any new webinars, but posted a handful of new videos to my YouTube channel. I also spent time polishing the material for the next July session of the Practical Ed Tech virtual summer camp. There is still time to register for the July and August sessions.
