So. Incredibly. Excited.
Classroom is a new product in Google Apps for Education that enables teachers to send assignments, make announcements, and conduct question & answer with students. Classroom was designed hand-in-hand with teachers to help them save time, keep their classes organized, and improve communication with students.

Using the new Merge add-on for Google Docs. I've used two non-default Google Web Fonts in my Doc, but when I preview, send a test, and send the actual email the fonts are replaced with standard defaults. Does Merge or MailChimp support Google Web Fonts?

▶ Troubleshooting Help  - 
 
I've got a teacher who has taken her Samsung 550 on a trip and she's having difficulty accessing the Internet at her hotel. She says it connects to WiFi but won't load any pages. Any chance the problem could be the hotel's WiFi is using a captive portal for authentication and Chrome OS can't handle it? I seem to remember +François Beaufort  posting something a while back about that. (FYI According to the admin console her Chromebook is running stable build 33.0.1750.152)

Irrelevant at this point. She's already moved to a different hotel and it's working fine on their WiFi. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Great stuff.
 
I really think we need to educate our communities on the true value in Chromebooks. I am trying to do so in my spheres of influence. If we all do our part we can help those around us move a direction that is good for them as users. If you think this article helps, consider sharing it.

Google has quietly upgraded their search calculator to not just answer your basic math questions or graphical or 3D math questions; now, it can do your geometry homework. You can ask Google geometry related questions and it will solve them for you, such as [perimeter of a trapezoid]: As Alex Chitu notes, you can also […]

#Chromecast FTW! iPad won't mirror NCAA tourney games to the TV, but I can cast a tab from my Mac just fine.

Google+ Questions - Desktop  - 
 
Our Google Apps for Edu domain is using Google+ among our teachers. Recently I've noticed people within our domain I'd had place in multiple circles many months ago are now no longer in those circles. When I attempt to re-add them to the same circles I get a red error "Error adding members to circle." I've tried to find a solution to the problem (which seems common upon searching) but have found no resolutions.

Kyle - I had the same issue at a restaurant. I visited the subnet mask, and was able to login and access the store wifi.

Tremendous use of the GIF.
 
How to Moonwalk

At a very young age I became an avid Michael Jackson fan. I also happened to have a talent for dancing. In fact, by 3rd grad I was teaching kids at recess how to moonwalk

It's too bad I didn't have this animated chart to assist me in teaching. A brilliant piece by Jacob O'Neal found here: http://dustn.ws/1ms2GDk
