Today we launched Google Handwriting Input (http://goo.gl/qWWhDU), which lets users handwrite text on their Android mobile device as an additional input method for any Android app, supporting 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. It works with both printed and cursive writing input with or without a stylus. Beyond text input, it also provides a fun way to enter hundreds of emojis by drawing them (simply press and hold the ‘enter’ button to switch modes). It also works with or without an Internet connection. Learn more at http://goo.gl/j7lFbC

ISTE 2015 - Reflecting and actions!
As I flew home from ISTE 2015, I began to wonder how I could possibly share everything I had heard and experienced over the three days I was there. I saw many exciting examples of ways teachers are developing literacy skills, personalizing learning, encoura...
