Weird- the black bar has returned to my Google Search for my GAFE account- and it keeps giving me CAPTCHA.

Embedding Google Drive Video is broken. No matter which account I use, home or work, the embed code is borked. Employees are complaining to me about this as well.

Can anyone check this on their end?

Thanks for the workaround, Ryan, but, please, everyone, do give feedback to Google that it's broken.

Hey! I've got a problem on ANY computer where I can't embed Google Drive video. Seems that the embed code is all jumbled.

This a Drive bug?

Hey all!

Happy new year. I am helping our teachers prepare for the Google Certified Educator Level 1 test. Does there exist a test or a "personal audit" for teachers on where they can judge their own skills?

Sure- I've made my own Google Forms for technology personal assessment, but thought perhaps there was a larger tool out there. I'm not too impressed with Google's Fundamentals Training.

Thoughts?

I agree +Bryan Erskine  - Level 1 more for General Staff, Level 2 for more tech savvy / experienced users.   I would love to get my administration to allow us to do the Level 1 for all staff but I don't think the all of the staff would find it useful. We are PreK-8, 1:1 5th-8th, shared carts in lower grades. 
One issue that plagues most teachers is the lack of time - too much to do, not enough time to get it all done.  Mandating another 10-15 hours to go through everything in this "course", then a 3 hour test would most like cause a mutiny!!!
I am hoping to get approval for a volunteer for the course type of thing with hopefully some incentives. Some PD time in school, individualized learning on their own, study group prior to test, etc.

I am Interested in thoughts of others on how they got the course going in their schools

Thinking about the next years AUP. Anyone put theirs up as a Google Form yet?

I tried using HelloSign this year, but came upon some limitations. I kept having to chase after parents to sign it- and finding their documents in a Google Folder wasn't ideal.

How do you do the digital signature with a Google Form? Does it hold any legal weight?

Secure data in Google Drive. We're making a push to take all of our old teacher data off our local server- and push that into Google Drive.

We're also making a push to move to teacher Chromebooks next year.

The only questions that really came up is student data like ISP/ ISLP stuff. Our counselor is worried about that data being on Google Drive. This worry is mostly FUD- because many of our administrators have been on PCs for years, and have avoided Google Drive on the Admin side.

Has anyone made the deep dive into putting sensitive student data in Drive- and has the world crumbled because of it?

What I learned today: The new G+ doesn't have Polls anymore. So the Level 2 Study Guide is already outdated.

The course worked on my school district account but not when I was logged into my new trainer domain until I enabled Google+ accounts on the domain.

I really like having a great new burger place near home. I also enjoyed the eclectic brews, which are vastly superior to all the domestic fare of The Tracks. The biggest issue was that it's really loud in here. Echoey. My buddy and I tried to have a conversation, and it was virtually impossible during the dinner hour.
