Skiing, Puzzling, and Overlooking - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where it's overcast and unseasonably warm. I took most of the week off to ski with my kids, teach some skiing lessons to other kids, and give my mind a little rest from thinking about educational technology. I hope that you have had a great week as well. 

As we're on the cusp of the New Year I'd like to say thank you to all of you who supported my work in 2022. An especially big thank you to those who enrolled in one of my courses, purchased one of my eBooks, or invited me to speak at your school. I couldn't keep this blog going without you. Thank you!

1. Short Lessons on How Snow is Made
