What have you found to be the best procedure for handling the shared documents of a staff member who leaves the district? For instance, someone who is the owner of a doc that multiple users contribute to and will need after their departure? Other procedures for "takeout" when staff exit? Thanks for your help!

+Debra Roethke We created a generic account for our department and have encouraged our folks to make that account the "owner" of documents. We are now on a sync with AD, so the availability of these generic accounts isn't really a viable option anymore. This is something we have been discussing all year and go back and forth with options. Thanks for sharing ideas here and thanks +Lyn Hilt  for starting the thread.

I'm glad Google did this, because some of their other statements have been ambiguous to say the least...

Anyone using Hangouts with students at the elementary for cross-building collaboration? Working out the ways to handle accounts, access, etc. Currently our staff have Hangouts access, but not students, so we considered creating a Hangout account for the groups who would be accessing the tool for collaborative purposes. Thoughts? Advice?

Today our community surpassed 2,000 members... and I believe it was one year ago in April that I started this group in the hopes of learning and sharing with dedicated integrators and coaches around the world! Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the conversations here. If you're new, please know that this community is meant to facilitate learning explorations, questions, share resources - but NOT in a spam-like manner. If you're sharing a resource such as a blog post you've written, an upcoming conference you want to promote, please take the time to write in the post how this resource will benefit our members. Also assign it to the most applicable category. Don't hesitate to reach out to me via email if you think someone in the community is abusing posting privileges. I look forward to learning with you! -Lyn

I agree with +Rachel Thompson Lyn!  You have no real way of measuring the impact this community has had as far away as little ol' New Zealand!  

I look forward to every email notification and it was this community that gave me the courage to start sharing with like minded pedagogy souls! Very proud to be a small drop in this ever expanding ocean!

We have just started using powermylearning.org. It starts at kinder and goes to 12th. Not sure if it would help or not.
Also abcmouse.com offers a free educator subscription.

Advice needed- some elem. intermediate students new to GAFE are using docs for writing "notes" back and forth. Shocking :) I don't know more circumstances about class management or engagement or content within the docs or anything like that, but a question was raised, should we block them from using GAFE? This, to me, seems like a teachable moment in the making, helping them learn how to manage the use of the tool and use it constructively for their learning. However, if the issues persist, I know the teacher/admin will want to take measures to prevent it. Are there ways to limit the types of sharing permissions students have, so that they can only create their own new docs and/or share or access docs with the teacher? Thanks in advance for your thoughts/any advice on this one.

+Lyn Hilt As we currently have 60 active classes monitoring is cursory. We rely on tchrs to connect w/ their students. Since we control and assign every I'd, we have the ability to launch the st accounts to see what they are doing as well as view revision hx. These are done randomly and we actually comment on their ss writing. This gets around thru words by the students. Some even look for our comments.
