Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that the new version of Google+ will be released on August 30th. If you haven't seen it yet, you will notice that the user interface for this community will change slightly. Nothing to fear. "Change is inevitable." - Damian Disraeli

Hey folks! If you can get out to the "country" we are going to have a fun few days in Huntington to learn more about Google, work on team building with BreakoutEDU and talk shop around 21st century skills!

Happy Monday everybody! If you haven't checked out Google's APP SHOW, it's pretty good. I subscribe to the YouTube playlist in order to get updates on what is new with Google Apps! In this episode, those of you who haven't used ADD-ONs in Google Docs or Sheets will learn some cool ways to improve functionality of these tools. Enjoy!

They're here! (Well, some of them!) Updates from the Google for EDU team:

- Google Expeditions App
- Google Cast for Education (students projecting wirelessly for free through an app)
- Quizzes in Google Forms (choose the correct answer - send learners to a different page, easy peasy)
- Creativity apps for the Chromebook (bundled software)

If you have come to this community with the intent of learning more about how to manage tablets with Google for Education, please see the following blog post regarding Google Play for Education: http://tinyurl.com/jastkpg The suggested course of action is to use a 3rd party EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) or MDM (Mobile Device Management) tools to manage applications on the devices. I see that there are some of you who are new to this community that are asking questions about Google Play for Education!

I love this post, Carol. Thank you for gently reminding us that mindfulness is as important as getting things done. It's a good time of the year for a reminder.
