Another post detailing some of the ways I work with Google Apps Script and other developer docs. This post has the added easter-egg of a template for getting basic YouTube channel stats into a Google Sheet

As of yesterday TED have uploaded 1,903 videos totaling 1,622,120 seconds of playtime which have been viewed 428,117,012 times and received 4,360,903 likes.

Found an interesting Extension.  It basically turns any webpage into a Whiteboard.  With a touchscreen and a projector, this turns your web-interface into an IWB.

Although it is still in the BETA stage, I think that this could be an extremely useful tool for teachers as we move away from IWBs.

The link is https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/whiteboard-beta/blmkcmjafbbmbahfgdlgncbfjkmanemm.  I have left my review, please feel free and echo/add to what I've said.

Note I have not been able to get this extension to work on my HP14 on ChromeOS v44.
Draw on any webpage (pretty much) or on a background color of your choosing.

This is great, I tried it out and yes it does need more development, but it's going to be a brill app for learning and teaching. After annotating you can use you snip tool or screen capture with snagit and it works fine.

Ever so slight off topic but the full clip is a great resource for introducing the history of computing
 
One of my favourite presentations is Bret Victor on the Future of Programming. This is a small clip of it I use to get people thinking about the future of education. Bret concludes not knowing what you are doing can be a good thing and ties well with 'pedagogies of uncertainty'

This post is more about my processes of unpicking APIs and will hopefully help anyone else wanting to do something similar
