Hi Everyone!!! Hey, wanted to share this you- GWAEA is doing a "Week of Making" this summer and have a couple different opportunities for folks to learn and experience makerspace and how it can tie to the curriculum and teaching and learning! We have Krissy Vensdale coming too! WOO HOO!

If you are able to come over and share your experiences we are looking for sessions too! There is a 2-day conference and then we are going to have a 3-day hands-on deep dive workshops with a smaller number of participants. Take a look, pass it on and let me know if you have questions!

Thanks to +Mindy Cairney for the share! I'm an extension junkie and this one is going on my list! You can share a video with a back channel, provide quiz questions and give feedback. I like it a lot!

Good Monday Morning! I learned about this extension last night and thought I'd share... if you have a bunch of photos in a folder this extension will create a slide deck with each photo on a slide! I could be this being super handy in classrooms. No more FILE->INSERT IMAGE over and over and over again!
