Just updated the MA Summit Schedule ~ I cannot believe how much is being packed in for Google PD in just three days! Google Educator Level 1 Bootcamp, AppEvents Admin Certification, PreSummit for Beginners, Maker and scaffolding Classroom options.

Blogger is not being updated and we are trying to be proactive in case our students need to switch to a different platform.

Does anyone know if Blogger is being discontinued? It is no longer available for iPad and we are curious if Google plans to discontinue Blogger all together. We have MANY teachers in our district with Blogger blogs to connect with parents and we are trying to be proactive in case it becomes unavailable. +Ziggy Dziegman do you know anything about this or know someone who may have an answer? We want to prepare our teachers if they need to move to a different blogging platform. Thank you in advance for any information you could share!
