Does anyone happen to have a digital breakout EDU they have created for copyright?

Do any of you use a framework like SAMR, TPACK, TIM, etc for tech integration? Interested in what others are using, how it was rolled out to teachers and how it has continued to be used with teachers.

Does anyone know how-to or a work around to add a repeating event to Google Calendar that has the same start/end times, but is on random days throughout the school year? I can click custom when creating an event, but it doesn't give me the customization I am looking for. It would be ideal if I clicked custom that I could click all the random dates that I wanted to apply the event to throughout the year. Hope that makes sense.

Does anyone have recommendations for good computer science trainings either locally in Iowa or regionally? Looking at options other than PLTW.

I am looking to see who I might contact about Educator Level 1 and 2 Certifications. My certificates say they were awarded March 15, 2016 and expire March 15, 2018. However, I was under the impression they were good for 36 months. On the teacher center site, in the Level 1 and 2 FAQ page, it tells me I can access my certificates via (https://www.webassessor.com/wa.do?page=createAccount&branding=GOOGLE#) However, it asks me to create an account and doesn't give me a login option. If I try to create an account, it says my email is already in use which is correct because I created an account when I took the level 1 and 2 tests. Any help is much appreciated.

Looking for some support. I have a Google Form set up for teachers to select which of the 4Cs (Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking) they would like to work on. In addition, each of the 4Cs has three levels they might learn about.

I want a Google Form submission to email the end user, but include a list of resources for their chosen "C" and level. For example, If I select Creativity Level 1, I get an email with only Creativity Level 1 Resources. If I select Collaboration Level 3, I only get Collaboration Level 3 resources.

I have tried to accomplish this with some mail merge add-ons for Google Sheets, but it doesn't work correctly or runs way too slow. I don't know much about Google Apps Script, but feel it might be the answer.

Any tips/trick/advice much appreciated.

I have a Google Form that teachers fill out based on the 4Cs. I want to run the merge on form submission and send a specific template based on the teachers response. For example, if teacher selects creativity level 1, they would receive a template that has resources for level 1. However, if they submit creativity level 2, they get a different template with different resources for level 2. In order to set this up, I had to create 12 separate autocrat jobs with conditional merges. Once this was set up, it took forever for autocrat to run the job. I am guessing it is because there are so many jobs on a single sheet. Is there a better way to make it run quicker? It would be ideal if it ran within a minute or two of submission. However, it was taking 15 to 30 minutes to finally run and send an email to the teacher.

Question about animated .gif files in Drive and Google Slides. I was working with a PE teacher that was inserting animated .gif files into his Google Slides. When the Slideshow was presented, these animated .gif files would automatically play/loop. Students were able to see the animations for their stations. This was roughly two weeks ago.

Now when he tries to put animated .gif files into his Slideshow, they won't play. They are a static image. He has been using the app Giphy Cam on IOS to record his very own animated gif files. They had been working fine. Now they don't. You can go to Giphy.com and copy the URL for one of those animated .gif files, insert it into Slides and it works fine.

We also noticed that these Giphy Cam created files that he has saved in his Google Drive, no longer play. They have to be double clicked in his Drive to have the animated .gif file play. A couple weeks ago, these same files played automatically in Drive and didn't need to be double clicked to open/play.

Any ideas what might have changed? We did find that if you download these animated .gif files that he created with Giphy Cam app, and insert them into PowerPoint, when you put PowerPoint into present mode, the animated .gif files that he created will actually play, but they won't in Slides even if you put it into Present mode.
