+Inbox by Gmail The new inbox is awesome but would be so much more useful with my work account/google apps account than with my personal gmail.

+Google Drive​ I'm a teacher and you could make my life so much easier (along with thousands of other teachers). Please add the ability to underline a word or single characters in Google Forms.

It would help trying to teach place value and a thousand and two different other "what is the meaning/part of speech/ authors tone in the underlined word".

We're waiting patiently but it seems like a simple word processing tool would be a simple addition. Thanks!

+Animoto Any chance you are adding a google sign in anytime soon? It would really encourage teachers to use animoto (teachers hate extra logins).

Interesting data on evangelism among denomination, age, and economic demographics.

I'm looking for some resources to aid in evaluating teachers in youth ministry. Suggestions?

+Marcus Byrd   thanks for the clarification.  I will say, that I do believe that teaching is a spiritual gift and there are some people who have it and some that don't.   That being said, your efforts are commendable however, I don't know if there is an assessment tool available for your task.  I come from a family of educators and we toss this issue around quite a bit but it never seems to get resolved because it depends on a lot of factors but there are somethings that you can do.   For me it starts with a vision of what do you WHO do you want students to be at the end of their time with youth ministry and how your teaching team aligns with that vision.   I say this because good teachers are seldom appreciated until life issues happens.     

I would first recommend that you and your team pray for a vision from God for who He wants your youth to be as a result of your collective ministries to youth and then like Nehemiah, I'd write it down and make it plain and then align everything to that vision.  As a reference here are our goals.

#1 The ability to rightly divide the Word of Truth 
#2 The ability to start and join a bible study
#3 The ability to initiate and perform Christian work

I heavily model after Student Led Youth Cells because all three of these goals can be met and evaluated in this model.    Once these are in place, I evaluate my teachers based on the ability of their students to operate in these three objectives.  Specifically:

#1 How do students go about finding biblical answers to life's challenges.
#2 Are youth starting and participating in bible studies
#3 Are youth actively engaged in Christian work

and 

Are youth bringing their friends and family to youth church and is the ministry growing?


I hope that helps...

Another teacher at my school would like to use Google Classroom in her math class. Does anyone know of a program that she could use to create quizzes and test that can be graded and analyzed? 

I use google forms and flubaroo but she is teaching place value and there is no way to underline the number that she wants her students to identify in a google form.

Thoughts?

+Google for Education​ Google classroom is great....but it seems like it could use some obvious upgrades/changes. I think a really nice feature would be the ability to access forms inside of the classroom...or similar to the new poll in Google+ alongside the announcement and assignment options.

In other words a way to get quick results from students without leaving the online classroom.

+Android Developers window views would be so awesome. It already exists for my LG apps but it would be so much better if I could do this with drive, YouTube, and heck all my android apps! Perhaps as an option in the settings menu.

I appreciate the honesty from this company. My laptop was acting crazy so I take it to these guys and they were able to figure out my problem. They let me know that the hard drive was no longer working and give me a quote to make the repair. I decided against replacing the hard drive and opted to upgrade to a new laptop. Very friendly guys who know their stuff and won't pressure you into anything. They are a good choice.

Gateway is a good church with good people. The church has been growing in recent years and seeing the Lord transform lives. They offer kids programs for kids and teens on Wednesday nights. The people make you feel welcome without making you blush and the music is great. Steel guitars, electric, and bass , baby grand piano. All live all the time!
