Are there any school districts out there in Minnesota who use the paid/premium version of Read and Write for Google? We are looking for a site visit to see it in action.

Does anyone out there use Read and Write for Google/TextHelp in their district? Thoughts?

Does anyone else have the issue when students log into a chromebook, but it tries to open a website with an incorrect or bizarre address and this causes chrome to crash? We remove the profiles (sometimes twice) and this "fixes" it, but it is time consuming and frustrating to deal with. Thanks.

Has anyone out there heard about the Classroom Experts adding a "view as student" option? We have some alias student accounts we give to teachers to do this, and they join their own classes. However, it is pretty cumbersome and then they have an extra "fake" student in their class.

Is anyone else having this issue with the new Forms quiz option:

A teacher sets it to only send back questions that were answered wrong, but the Form still returns all answers, including correct answers? Are we missing something?

Has anyone else had the shortcut/update of the comment icon disappear in Docs?  I highlight an area to comment on and the icon does not show up anymore?

I have teachers who just don't want to use the new Google Forms. Does anyone know how long the option to revert back to the old Forms will be available?
