Thanks to +George Station​ for sharing this.
Reform Your Classroom.
Little bits of practical advice like this do more than "big ideas"(tm) that require big piles of money.
Over the years, when it comes to student cellphones in class, I've moved from outright hostility to begrudging acceptance to looking at them as an overall benefit (though not unreservedly)-- at lea...

This seems to work really well. I am using it write this and it could be a great keyboard replacement.
oops! Forgot to say I found this thanks to +Laura Gibbs
Today we launched Google Handwriting Input (, which lets users handwrite text on their Android mobile device as an additional input method for any Android app, supporting 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. It works with both printed and cursive writing input with or without a stylus. Beyond text input, it also provides a fun way to enter hundreds of emojis by drawing them (simply press and hold the ‘enter’ button to switch modes). It also works with or without an Internet connection. Learn more at

Interesting news item - especially with #OERl5 on at the moment.
Teachers in the UK, who have often complained about long hours at home making their own class materials, are selling their lessons online.

The +TES Connect is running a digital marketplace for teachers to sell their lesson ideas to other teachers. It is the latest example of teachers producing their own bespoke classroom materials and sharing them online.
