We were lucky enough to have Wes Fryer visit Yarmouth High School on Wednesday. Wes presented Deepening our Learning Through Storytelling. He also raffled off his new book: Playing With Media.
Wes met with teachers afterwards and helped us work further on The Arab Spring Project.
Wes, Thank you so much! It's always great to work with you. Your enthusiasm and energy are a joy to be around!
Google Geo Institute at The University of Southern Maine in Lewiston/Auburn. The two mornings sessions were presentations and the afternoons were split between learning Google Earth and Google SketchUp. I enjoyed Toby Lester's speech about the Fourth Part of the World (his website is fantastic) and the Giant map of North America.
