As you drive the winding, tree lined road towards this small town, you feel like gnomes and fairies will pop out around the next corner to say, “Welcome to Hogsback!”

The town is quite small but very busy. There is no end to the number of things you can do just by walking down the Main Road. From eateries to places dedicated to fairies and gnomes, it is a great place to explore on foot with your family.

University of Michigan’s Dyslexia Help. While dyslexia can affect people of all ages, it’s particularly impactful to young students.

Free Technology for Teachers: Google Apps Terminology


Earlier this week I received an email from someone who was looking for clarification on the differences between Google Apps for Education, Google Drive, and Google Docs. That request for clarification isn’t uncommon. Here’s how I typically try to explain the differences between Google Apps for Education, Google Drive,  and Google Docs.

Google Apps for Education:
Google Apps for Education (commonly referred to as GAFE) is a free service that Google provides to schools. Within Google Apps for Education students, teachers, administrators, and support staff can use Google Classroom, Google Drive, Google Sites, Google Calendar, Gmail, and many other Google products. Google Classroom is only available to GAFE users. It provides a mechanism for teachers to distribute to and collect assignments from students.

Free Technology for Teachers: ImageCodr Helps You Create Correct Image Citations


Creative Commons licensing makes many photos available for re-use that we otherwise could not use. The trouble is properly citing Creative Commons licensed works can sometimes be a confusing, multistep process. ImageCodr aims to make that process easier.

ImageCodr generates properly formatted Creative Commons attributions for images that you find on Flickr. Once you’ve found a Flickr image that you want to use just paste its URL into the ImageCodr code generator to get a properly formatted image code with Creative Commons attribution.
