Hey guys...I know this is extremely short notice but is there a Google employee that would be willing/available for a brief Hangout with a High School ESE class that is incredibly interested in Google, your history, how search works. It would be at around 1:15PM ET and only for a few minutes (maybe 15 or so.) Please let me know. Thanks!

Thank you Jerry, I made a copy for my files in case we go 1:1 with iPads. We held off doing student Apple ID's in our 1:1 classrooms because of all of the issues. I was trying to purchase iBooks through VPP, we held off for now. Using other options.

TONS of new features coming soon to Google Drive and Google Apps for Edu including the ability to add "trusted domains" to Google Classroom - this is a big deal for those schools/districts that have teachers and students on separate domains.

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.

Thank you so much for posting this! It was exactly what I needed for my own district. With your permission I would like to modify it and add a few additional comments and images. Could you tell me how you created the torn paper effect on the screenshots?

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.
