 Computer Science Custom Search, a customized search engine for finding K-12 computer science education (CS) resources. Developed using a collection of over 550 CS education websites, such as Khan Academy, Google CS First, Girl Develop It, Bootstrap, ScratchEd, Code.org and Made with Code to name a few, CS Custom Search connects you to computer science education materials and programs. By focusing on a list of websites that provide primarily free and open K-12 CS education resources, the customized search engine ensures that you will find materials that can be readily adopted for your class, after school program, or enrichment for your child.

CS Custom Search has been designed to support a range of users with varying degrees of experience with CS. For those with extensive experience, CS Custom Search has been optimized to support queries for unique CS topics across a wide range of languages and platforms. For those with less experience, the custom search solution provides recommendations on a range of search topics to ensure that a lack of CS vocabulary doesn’t negatively impact your results.

Start searching by visiting www.cs4hs.com/resources/cscs.html.

Looking for a classroom activity? Computer Science Custom Search is a great place to identify activities for your classroom. You can search on any combination of terms, such as by grade level (e.g. "middle school", "high school"), the type of material (e.g. "lesson plan", "tutorials"), ...

Figuring out how to use a new app, software, device, or social network is never easy. That’s probably why there are so few truly popular and robust social networks, for example, in use today. Seriously, there are billions of people on this planet and apparently less than a dozen social networks suffice? Seems odd, no? …

OK, I need to show this to my students.  Just ONE photo on my cell phone is larger than 5MB!

An interesting idea...
 
Volunteer for a child, without leaving G+
simple giving

We already have over 100 teachers who'd love you to read with their kids for 20 mins. a week, starting in September. Teachers don't get time to read 1-on-1 with every student each week. I believe generous Plussers can make a difference.

We are especially looking for volunteers with a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

This looks interesting - I could do this with students!
 
Summary: Printing from a Chromebook isn’t like printing from any other computer: You need to use Google Cloud Print. Don’t have a printer that supports Cloud Print? Why not use a $35 Raspberry Pi as a low-powered Google Cloud Print Server?
