Free Technology for Teachers: Generators, Animations, and Snow
Good morning from Maine where the wind is howling and the temperature is rapidly dropping. We had planned to ski today, but the wind and ice has altered our plans. So instead of skiing we’ll putter around the house making sure everything is ready for Santa to visit tonight. I predict some cookie eating and hot cocoa drinking is also in our near future. I hope that you have something equally fun and relaxing to do today.
There were two developments in my professional life this week. First, I got hired to be a part-time ski instructor at our local ski mountain. I’ve always said that I’d like to teach physical education, this is probably as close as I’ll ever get to that. Second, this week I announced a new online course that I’ll be teaching over the course of four weeks in January.
These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. How a Generator Works – And Other Short Lessons About Generating Electricity
2. 17 Tools for Collaboratively Creating Mind Maps and Flowcharts
3. How to Collect Pictures Through Google Forms
4. Slideator – Add Your Voice to Almost Any Type of Slideshow
5. How to Clip Sections of Your YouTube Videos
6. Some Thoughts About AI in Education
7. Create Animations from Audio in Adobe Express
