Google Maps Distance Measurement Tool - Guest Writer

Ok Friends.  I know I am beginning to sound like a broken record, but once again there are not enough hours in the day to get my job done and write my blog post.  

Thanks to Jerilyn Lynn though, here is an awesome idea using Google Maps.

Google Timer - Guest Writer

Summer is a very busy time for school technology departments.  Because of this, it has been difficult to find time to write a post. 
In order to provide great information for my readers, even during the BUSY summer months, I have enlisted the help of some guest writers.
This week I am using a write-up from Jerilyn Lynn, M.I.L.S - University of Michigan, Technology Resource Specialist for Ypsilanti Community Schools.

I hope you enjoy this write-up as much as I did!

Thank you Jerilyn!

Wow! Today!

So, here it is.  My post for today.  It is already 7:30 p.m. and something should have been posted almost 12 hours ago.  I am sorry this post is not more exciting, but I promised myself that I would post something at least once a week and I wanted to stick to my promise.

I am sorry is all I can say.  I have been so busy that I have not had time to write a post.  We had 2 buildings start back on Monday, they are on balanced calendar.  I have been working on getting equipment out for my SE students as well as getting new iPads delivered to the GE teachers of our balanced calendar buildings.  This is the first time I have been able to sit down all day.

I hope everyone still on summer vacation is having a great break.  See everyone in a few weeks.  I will be on vacation next week but I promise that next weeks post will be better.

Note Anywhere

Have you ever wanted to leave a note on a webpage?
Are you looking for a tool to leave some thoughts while doing some research?

I have a great option for you to try.

Note Anywhere

Note Anywhere is a Google Extension. It allows you to add one or more Post-it type notes on any page. 
The notes stay on the page until you delete them. The notes load auto-magically when you open the web page.  If you have notes on any given webpage, the extension icon tells you how many post-its you have on that page.

If you right click on the Note Anywhere icon in your extensions tool bar, you can open the options menu.  Within options you can change the color of the post-it note.  You can also view a summary of where you have notes.  It will provide you with a list of URL links to the articles with notes on them.  


Note Anywhere can be a useful research tool for both teachers and students.
