Free Technology for Teachers: Geography, AI, and Presentations


Good evening from Maine where it was a great first day of spring! I went for a bike ride outside then played outdoor bingo with my daughters. We also got started on some yard work that we can do in the few west-facing patches of lawn where the snow has completely melted to the ground. Outdoor bingo was a lot more fun than yardwork. I hope that you also had time for something fun today. 

This week I hosted a webinar titled Copyright & Creative Commons for K-12 Educators. The recording of the webinar is available here. Next week I’m hosting a Practical Ed Tech webinar titled 5 Ways to Blend Technology Into Outdoor Lessons. You can register for that webinar here. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:

1. How Does Artificial Intelligence Learn? – A TED-Ed Lesson I’m Using Today
2. City Guesser 2.0 – Guess City Locations from Video Clips
3. Kahoot Now Displays Questions and Answers on the Same Screen – Finally!
4. Jamboard Now Offers Version History
5. Live Transcription in Zoom – Free for All Who Need It
6. A New Look for Presenting With Google Slides
7. Enable Audio and Video Captions on Any Page in Chrome
