Cupcakes, Canva, and Docs - The Week in Review

Good morning from Connecticut where I'm visiting family for the first time in two years! My daughters had a blast having a slumber party with two of their cousins. Besides visiting family I'm looking forward to getting some good bagels this weekend. That's something we just don't have anywhere near my home in Maine. I hope that you also have something you're looking forward to this weekend. 

This week I hosted a webinar about teaching search strategies to history students. If you missed it, a recorded version will be available soon. This week I also hosted a webinar for a group that had purchased a bunch of copies of 50 Tech Tuesday Tips. I'd be happy to host a webinar for your group. Send me an email at richard (at) to learn more. 

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. My Big Playlist of Canva Tutorials
2. Ten Overlooked Google Docs Features for Students and Teachers
3. Use TinyTap to Create Interactive Lessons and Games With Soundboards
4. Take Flight With This Library of Congress Image Collection
5. Take a Virtual Tour of the National Museum of Computing
6. Map Puzzle - Test Your Knowledge of World Geography
7. How Graphs Can Be Misleading
