NatGeo hangout on air scheduled for July 1. 
 
Explorers and scientists use engineering nearly every day when they're traveling the world doing field work. We've challenged kids around the world to develop original solutions to three specific problems that Nat Geo staff have encountered, and we want to see what you've got so far! Hang out LIVE with Alan Turchick, a Nat Geo engineer who will review the NGX Challenge program and answer questions about your solutions, on July 1 at 1:00 p.m. ET. This is the perfect opportunity to get expert feedback and share ideas! Learn more about the NGX Challenge here: www.NatGeoEd.org/NGX

Have questions? Email NGX@ngs.org ahead of time to make sure they get asked during the broadcast!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by National Geographic Education. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

JUST LAUNCHED: New Google Classroom Features!

Fresh out of #ISTE2015 , the #GoogleClassroom  Team just launched a set of brand new features, some rolling out over the summer and by August:

Classroom API: The Classroom API allows admins to provision and manage classes at scale, and lets developers integrate their applications with Classroom.

Classroom share button: a simple way for developers – or schools – to allow teachers and students to seamlessly assign or turn-in links, videos and images from another webpage or product.

Mobile Classroom notifications: In the next few weeks, we’ll be adding mobile notifications in our iOS and Android app.

Re-use previous posts: If you used Classroom this year and want to reuse your assignments or materials in future classes, you'll be able to in August. We’re planning to roll out the ability for you to reuse assignments and posts from old classes.

Easier provisioning of Google Apps accounts for your domain: Last week we introduced a new API to generate available usernames and create Google Apps accounts in your domain: account provisioning for Google Apps.

Check the blog post: http://googleforeducation.blogspot.com/2015/06/new-ways-to-integrate-with-Google-Classroom.html
