Just making sure everyone has heard about this event in Breck at the end of May. It would be great to have a GEG Colorado get together at this summit... Great speakers are headed our way! https://co.gafesummit.com/breckenridge/

Some of our recent high school graduates complained after we suspended their accounts (we gave them 5 months from the time they graduated to transfer their data). Do you allow your students to keep their Google Apps accounts after they graduate from high school? And, if so how long do you allow them to keep their accounts for (if you don't mind leaving a comment below, we would greatly appreciate it!)? Thank you so much! #GAFE

This is for a College, but we let users keep their accounts for a year from their last activity Date. Which I think is a bit long

Hi everyone...I'm Kim Zimmer, a technology teacher/trainer at Avoca West Elementary School. +Beth Haugeberg  and I work together! Like she said, we have been a GAFE school for many years and I became a Google Certified Teacher in Boulder in 2009. It just so happens that I'll be returning to Colorado to pursue at Technology Integration Specialist Position at Vail Mountain School in July. So, while my time with GEG Chicagoland is limited,  I do look forward to connecting with all of you as much as possible in the meantime and hopefully getting some inspiration to start a GEG out there!

My name is Kim Zimmer and I'm a Colorado newbie. It is great to see that GEG Colorado is up and running! I just moved to Summit County from Chicago (currently living in Frisco), from a job as a K-5 Technology Facilitator to my new job, Technology Integration Specialist at Vail Mountain School (K-12, Independent). We have some great collaborative spaces here at VMS in a very idyllic setting so if the GEG ever wants to head out this way, I would be more than willing to host an event! 

This year I'll be teaching technology to the upper elementary and middle school students while coaching teachers and helping them make the most out of the iPads and BYOD program here at VMS. In addition to those roles, I'll be managing our Google Domain. Ever since attending Google Teacher Academy in Boulder in 2009, I have wanted to live in this beautiful state so I couldn't be more excited to start this new chapter and meet all of you!
