Good morning from Maine where sun is rising and it’s going to be a nice summer day to start a long weekend. I’ll be mowing before setting up a water bounce house for my kids to play in. The bounce house is one of the best “pandemic purchases” we made in the spring of 2020. My kids love it and I do too. I hope that you have something fun to do this weekend!

This week I wrapped up my Teaching History With Technology course. I’m not hosting any more courses until the fall, but will be hosting a series of individual webinars over the next six weeks. You can learn more about those webinars here

These were the week’s most popular posts:
