Installing Fonts on the MLTI MacBook Air

This screencast actually came from a request from students that their teacher brought to me. Apparently in years past it was quite a process to install fonts on the laptops. With the new MLTI MacBook Airs, it is super easy. The key is to find the file that you downloaded, which defaults to the "Downloads" folder in your finder menu. If the file is a .zip, you should be able to double click on it to "unzip" it to a regular folder. Once you open the "unzipped" folder, double click on the .ttf file and it will open in the Font Book. Clicking on the button in the bottom right hand corner of the font book will verify and install the font. From there, you should be good to go.

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
