One month and one day from now will be the first annual EdCamp Rome at Rome High School. Registration for the event, as of today, is at 119 participants! That is 119 Rome City Schools, Floyd County Schools, and other educators from Atlanta, Athens, and surrounding areas who are coming together to learn and share! If you are attempting to add to your teacher tool box, you can't miss this amazing opportunity to learn from and with brilliant educators from around the state. 

In addition to the learning opportunities available we also have fabulous sponsors who are going to make the day even better. You all know about breakfast provided by RRW Inc, lunch provided by Logical Systems, and a commemorative EdCamp Rome T-Shirt courtesy of EDCO Education. We have also been reaching out to other vendors asking for swag of all kinds to hand out to attendees and WOW... People have stepped up! Below is a list of swag to be dished out during the event. 

SWAG Includes:
Chick-Fil-A Sandwich Coupons for Each Attendee
TechSmith Snagit T-Shirts
Full Versions of TechSmith Camtasia (Video Editing at it's finest!)
Full Versions of TechSmith Snagit (Great for Screen Capture/Basic Editing!) 
Gift Card for a Jacket from Blue Sky Outfitters (Up to $100 value!)
There's much more to come! 

Finally, if you want to guarantee your EdCamp Rome T-Shirt, please register prior to next Friday, February 27th. We need to get them to the printers...  

Have a great weekend and stay warm! If you can make it we'd love to have you!

Very, very useful!
 
Introducing inactiveAccountInventory - a very simple Add-on for GAFE domain admins to identify users who just aren't logging in!

This Add-on was primarily built to help schools serving high-needs student populations identify and intervene around inequities in student account usage.

Use scenarios:
Students lose their GAFE logins and often don't seek help. Teachers may not be making GAFE account usage an expectations of students, resulting in low usage rates. A student may have left the school or district and the account now requires deprovisioning.  Some late-adopter members of your staff may have missed the memo that they are supposed to be checking their email.

The inactiveAccountInventory Add-on makes it a snap for super-admins to identify which accounts are lying dormant on the domain so your school can take the appropriate next actions.

Install here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/inactiveuserinventory/igbpefhonccbnklchngjkfgbjjoihcip?utm_source=permalink

(not yet public in the Add-ons for Sheets store)

Features include:
- ability to set the threshold number of days that defines user inactivity.
- ability to select and scan specific Organizational Units

Note: You must be a domain super-admin to run this Add-on.

Wow - this is a great tip!  I'm going to share this with my teachers in my district.  Thanks for being so detailed.  Also didn't know about Permanent Clipboard -- adding that now.

ISTE Emerging Leader 2014. Doctoral Student. Google Certified Teacher. FLAGeorgia Teacher of the Year 2014. Technology Integrationist. Games-Based Learning Expert. Emergent Education Specialist. Futurist. All-around super geek.
Introduction
I am an Ed Tech doctoral student at the University of Florida and an nine-year educator with many roles, including including high school instructor, educational researcher, a Google Certified Teacher (Chicago '13), the GEG Georgia Co-Leader, and development and conference presenter. I specialize in using and teaching effective digitized pedagogy, and my research resides in emergent trends, topics and technology in education, and, specifically, games-based learning and the gamification of education.

I was recently named an Emerging Leader 2014 for the International Society of Technology in Education and the Teacher of the Year 2014 by the Foreign Language Association of Georgia.

Outside of my professional life, I am married to my favorite gadget guy in the world and love playing with my two little lady geeks-in-training.
