I’ve never really figured out how to use Google Analytics to learn about my blog’s statistics beyond the basics.

Roobrick is a new online tool for creating rubrics. I’m adding it to The Best Rubric Sites (And A Beginning Discussion About Their Use).
Nathan Pyle shares pretty creative cartoons and videos online. In one of his series, he has pigeons walking around having conversations. Yes, I know it sounds weird, but it works. You can see one of his videos here and, at the same time, he explains how he uses Instagram to create them. I think students could use this technique, too, and not just with pigeons. I’m adding this info to The Best Resources For Using “If This Animal Or Image Could Talk” Lesson Idea In Class and to The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram list.
YT to IG is a new that lets you easily post YouTube videos to Instagram. I’m adding it to the same list.
