EdTech Links of the Week - 11-01-22

Each week I keep an eye out for the latest edtech resources through blogs, social media, podcasts, videos, user groups, and more. I then try to reshare these resources in many ways.

One way I share these is here on the blog in these "EdTech Links of the Week" posts. See below to explore the latest batch of resources, and be sure to share with others who may benefit.

📮 Join the "Control Alt Achieve" Email Discussion Group

  • I am excited to announce the launch of the "Control Alt Achieve" email discussion group!
  • There are many ways that I communicate and share EdTech resources including this blog, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, my newsletter, and more.
  • However, a lot of that is one-way communication. Although that is an effective way to share out information, those methods are not always the best for discussions and connections and community.
  • To help with this I have create a Google Group to serve as a "Control Alt Achieve" email discussion group. Anyone with an interest in educational technology is welcome to join.
  • See the linked blog post for all the details.  I am so excited to connect with and learn from you!

📆 Google Docs Calendar Templates for the 2023-2024 School Year

A couple years ago I created some Google Docs templates for a colleague who was looking for a simple one-page document to show important calendar dates for an entire school year. The templates were a big hit and many people found them to be helpful.

For all of you super organized people who are already planning for the next school year, I am happy to say I have versions for 2023-2024. See the blog post for the links to get your own copies of these templates, as well as some basic directions on how to edit them for your own use.
