Hey everyone! I'm working with a 5th grade teacher in Florida with the planning of her annual Skype Around the World Project. This year the Skype chats will take place May 5th through May 8th. If any of you, especially outside of the US, is interested, please let me know. This is something she's done for a few year's now and it's one of her kids' favorite times of the school year. I hope you'd like to be a part of it.

Are there any educators in Ireland that would be willing to Skype or Hangout with a primary school classroom (ages 10-11) on Tuesday 3/17 at 9 AM? The class is interested in speaking about St. Patrick's Day and any customs and traditions you and your students' families might have.

Their obsession with security limits choices. I'm sure they are very serious dudes. But they seem to be clowns.

Once I set the custom wallpaper in the admin console for my Chromebooks, how do I turn that custom wallpaper off to allow users to select their own wallpaper again?

Incidentally, if you are having chromebooks delete user's local data (as in a multiple user environment) this feature is sort of broken.  There is an open ticket at crbug here:

Star it if you want updates on progress.

Yes Jerry, the title is misleading. I looked at the video three times and I didn't find that info either. Thanks, David
