Free Technology for Teachers: Pi, Puppy, and AI

Free Technology for Teachers: Pi, Puppy, and AI

Good morning from Maine where the sun is shining and it will be a beautiful last day of winter. This will be perfect for playing outside with the newest member of our family, Rangeley Noodle! Last weekend we got a black lab puppy and my daughters named him Rangeley Noodle. Rangeley is for one of our favorite places in Maine and Noodle because my five year old thought it was fun to say and the rest of us went along with it. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope you also have something fun to do outside.

This week I started a new course called Five Video Projects for Almost Every Classroom. Even if you miss the first week, you can still sign up and get all the lessons.

These are the most popular posts of the week:

1. A Round-up of Pi Day Resources

2. AI Tools are coming to Google Workspace Tools

3. An Overview of Artificial Intelligence Use and Detection

4. 15 Microsoft Forms Tutorials for Teachers

5. A New Answer to the Questions I’m Most Frequently Asked

6. Annotate Videos with Text and Images

7. Awesome – An AI Concept Map Generator
