Conversation between me (IT Director) and a Classroom teacher.

Me: Google Classroom updated some features today.
Teacher: Really, what?
Me: They added the ability to add your own picture to your class.
Teacher: Why didn't they add something useful, like Co-Teachers.

+UK Tutoring Services-Cambodia  Australia... but I have no idea what that has to do with it. You should be asking how the systems for comparing country's education systems is being used. 

Take PISA for example:
In Singapore it is well known that students with disabilities such as autism or dyslexia are often not tested and the education system (and culture) are dismissive of them. As opposed to Australia where such students are tested and taught in collaboration with other students. This results in a drop of perceived education in countries that are inclusive, while other countries less inclusive have a perceived rise. I am sure if Singapore started testing everyone to the same degree Australia did then they would be very shocked... and this is just one example of why global testing is flawed.

In terms of Autism and Dyslexia technology can help. I have found that both can often (but not always) find typing as a useful way of avoiding the hazards of their problems in areas of writing as it helps them review their own writing, something many can nto do normally due to very messy writing (messy writing for a high spectrum autism and dyslexia is not usually something that can easily be trained to avoid).

Headers and Footers - the way you want them
One of your biggest requests (especially those of you who use +Google Docs to write academic papers) is to be able to customize how headers and footers appear on the first pages of your documents. 

With today’s updates, you can now use different headers and footers on the first pages of your documents, which comes in handy for:
-   Following academic formatting guidelines (e.g. MLA, CMS, APA)
-   Starting page numbering on the second page
-   Making a title page without headers or footers

After inserting a header or footer in your document you’ll see a new checkbox--just tick it and you’ll be able to set a different header and footer on the first page.

There’s also a new Insert > Page Number menu that lets you customize how and where you start your page numbers--like on the bottom of the second page, for example.

+Nicholas Stefan Yes, you can.  Just click back into the header/footer area and delete the text that's there.  It's gone from the header.
