Hello from Maine where the sun is rising and I’m about to go for an early morning bike ride. Before I do that, I have this week in review to share with you.

This week I did not host any webinars as I spent four days working on developing new materials on research strategies including development a new research challenge for students. I also took a day off this week to go to the ocean with my family. We went looking for puffins and found hundreds! Unfortunately, I forgot to take my good camera with me so I don’t have good photos. Well, that’s a good excuse to go looking for puffins again later this summer. If you want to learn more about puffins in Maine, visit the Audubon Society website Puffin Project website.

Here are the most popular articles of the week:

1. Collect Chat – Turn a Google Form into a Chatbot

2. Getting Started with Google Forms – The Basics and More

3. See the elements found in common products – The periodic table in pictures and words

4. Three places to find fun and interesting math problems

5. Add PhET simulations to your PowerPoint slides

6. Challenge – Introduce students to search engines and academic databases

7. GitMind – A collaborative mind mapping and description tool

Professional development on demand
