On April 12th, my students threw down a challenge to the world: Create a video about coding and/or creativity and send it to us. They would then pick the top video and the winner would receive two new robotic friends that inspire us to code: Dash and Dot, courtesy of Wonder Workshop. The loved all the submissions so much and had a hard time narrowing it down... but ultimately they made a decision. Read on to see the winning student videos and my students' response!

Shared this a while back and it's still good.  Some harsh language but it's Cracked after all.
You're going to hate hearing this. My only defense is that this is what I wish somebody had said to me around 1995 or so.

Check out the new Google Photos app — which comes with unlimited storage for photos up to 16MP and videos up to 1080p HD resolution. Just choose ‘high quality’ when you upload them through the new Photos app or Photos desktop uploader if you’d like them stored for free.

Just like before, the images and videos you keep in Google Photos will appear in Google Drive automatically and any you upload or sync using Drive will always be the uncompressed, originals and will use your available storage.

I had no idea Remote Desktop also worked on mobile devices.  How did that escape me?
 
Self-driving cars, Google Glass, and virtual reality headsets, it is no secret that Google builds products that seem to be pulled straight from the imaginations of science fiction writers. But did you know there are futuristic Google technologies you can use right now for free?

We’ve put together a list of six free and ready-to-use tools that will make you feel like you just got out of a time machine. From sending links via sound waves to navigating outer space from your desktop, we are truly entering a new era of technological progress. Join us and explore the future now.

+Daniel Rivera Even worse: our History dept. is scared to even speak out about it in public. How sad is that...? A reporter from IHE could only get one faculty member to speak on the record, and one anonymously... nobody else. Here's the article; just came out last week:
