Free Technology for Teachers: Giraffes, Stories, and Bubbles


Good morning from Maine where consistent summer weather seems to be eluding us. As I write this it’s overcast and 50F! I guess we’ll be wearing sweatshirts and fleeces to the graduation party we’re going to this afternoon. 

This week I took a day off to take my kids to the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston. We had a great time watching the giraffes, observing the gorillas, and playing on some cool playscapes. I hope that you also had a great week and have a great weekend!

These were the week’s most popular posts:


1. 45 Canva Tutorials for Teachers and Students

2. Lessons for World Bicycle Day
3. Unpoppable Bubbles – Another Fun Summer Science Lesson

4. A Quick and Easy Way to Make Your Own Wordle-like Game
5. Three Ideas for Telling Stories With Pictures
6. Screencasting on Chromebooks – Built-in Tool vs. Third-party Tools
7. A Giraffe in Our House – More Fun With Augmented Reality
