Good morning from Maine where the sun is rising over what should be a nice summer day to play outside. We’re going to ride bikes and play outside at a friend’s birthday party. I hope that you do something equally fun this weekend. 

This week I wrapped-up the new version of my search strategies course. I do have some other courses that you can take right now before the new school year starts. You can find those courses right here on Practical Ed Tech
