Free Technology for Teachers: Pi, Myths, and Daylight

Good morning from Maine where the sun is shining and we’re all ready to go out and play in the snow. It’s going to be a great day for late-winter skiing. I hope that you also do something fun this weekend. 

This week I hosted a webinar for a school and had a Zoom meeting with some folks who recently completed my course on how to create and sell digital products. If you take the course, I’ll be happy to Zoom with you too. Speaking of courses, Five Video Projects for Almost Every Classroom begins on Tuesday. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. Physical Education Activities for Pi Day

2. A Lesson in Writing Myths

3. Changes are Coming to Your Favorite Google Workspace Tools

4. “But It’s Still Sunny Outside!” – Short Lessons on Daylight Saving Time

5. Three Activities All Teachers Can Create in TeacherMade

6. Another Tool for Detecting Writing Created by AI

7. 167 Math In “Real Life” Lessons

Make More Money This Year!

If you’re looking for a way to put a little more money in your pocket this year, my self-paced course How to Create and Sell Digital Products in 2023 is for you! It’s one of three on-demand courses that I currently offer.
