My airport moment

Calling all teachers and educators, +Margaret Powers has created an incredible spreadsheet to collect a list of educators using Glass that can be filtered by grade, location, etc and a list of projects so that educators could begin connecting with other classes to work on Glass projects. 

Check it out here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1to_AFKXiERiOLI-i_SSZ2IL93yO_xGce0mENwQsX3YI/edit#gid=2131018683

This will be a very helpful resource for new and seasoned Explorers. The more educators who add to this spreadsheet, the more valuable it becomes. Please pass it along and ask them to share how they are using Glass in the classroom.

I frequently listen to the song "Once in a lifetime" by the Talking Heads when I am in the process of making a big decision or simply reflecting on my disposition. Over the past few weeks, this song has found its way into my various playlists during workouts, commutes, and downtime. I’ve had a lot to think about and a lot to be grateful for at my current stage in life. I recently finished my manuscript for Corwin Press and two weeks ago I accepted the position of director of technology at Grafton Public Schools. While I am excited to get started and embrace new challenges that lie ahead, I can’t help but ask, “How did I get here?”

Awesome! I have been waiting for this from Google
 
This is exciting news... Google's first foray into providing a native LMS in Google Apps for Education.  #gafesummit   #googlect   #appsct  

Have they once again torpedoed an entire industry? This may once again be a good thing for schools. :)

It's undoubtedly only the beginning...
