Good evening from Banner County, Nebraska! I’m here for the next few days to visit my good friends Kris and Beth Still. Those of you who have followed by blog since its early days may recall that Beth is the person who organized the NECC Newbie project way back in 2009. It was through her initiative that I was able to attend my first NECC (now ISTE) conference. For that, I am eternally grateful to Beth and all of you who supported that project because it dramatically altered the course of my career for the better.
This week I wrote a few blog posts related to Geography Awareness Week that starts next week. I’ll have more posts about it during the next few days including some posts about Google Earth and Google Maps. If you want to dive deeper into those areas, my course about Google Earth and Maps is 50% off for the rest of month when you use the code GEOAWARENESS22 on the registration page.
These were the week’s most popular posts:

3. 30+ Activity Templates to Use in Google Classroom
