Wow, it's the last W.O.W. this year! Let's pair up with Ditch That Textbook and Google Tools to rock the end of the year. Matt Miller agrees that the end of a school year is unique:   State tests are behind us. Many students are working on big projects or papers. It can be a great time of reflection on how far students have come. It’s review time. He's compiled 10 ways Google tools can help you wrap up the year in awesomeness. Happy Googling and Happy Summer!

Wow, it's almost the Global Day of Design! May the 4th be with you! If you and your students participated in the Worldwide Day of Play (or even if you didn't!) and enjoyed the creative expressions and problem-solving opportunities that came about during that event, you'll love the Global Day of Design-- a chance for students to tinker and build things. From the authors of LAUNCH: The Global Day of Design is one-day event that focuses on using the Design Thinking process in school. Our goal for the Global Day of Design is to inspire a transformation in schools around the world to incorporate design into an every day practice with our students. In the past two years over 100,000 students from 950 schools (and four continents) have participated. We are hoping to grow even more this year! For more information, or to sign up, or to download a free toolkit, visit On a totally unrelated note, today is also World Penguin Day. Hear from Ecologist Michelle LaRue here: And, just for fun, here's a link to the Penguin Cam from KC Zoo: Happy Tinkering (just not with penguins)!
