Education-Specific Capabilities coming to the Google Docs Explore tool

One of the best things about Google is that they listen to their users with open ears, and make update their products accordingly. And that is exactly what the #GoogleDocs team did with the new Explore Tool when teachers and students realized that one of the most used features of the classic Research Tool was missing, the Cite feature.

I blogged about it twice:
How to Create Citations without the Research Tool

Give Official Google Docs Team Feedback on the Missing Citation Tool!
http://technocation.blogspot.com/2016/10/google-docs-citation-feedback.html

After much complaining and lots of feedback from teachers and students, the team has listened and released the following statement on October 17, 2016:

Update - October 17th, 2016: Based on customer feedback, we are adding education-specific capabilities to the Explore tool in Google Docs before rolling it out to Google for Education (EDU) domains on Scheduled release. Please note that this will not impact the launch of Explore in Docs to EDU and non-EDU customers on Rapid release, for whom the rollout has already completed, or to non-EDU customers on Scheduled release, for whom the gradual rollout has already begun. It also will not impact the launch of Explore in Google Sheets and Slides, which is continuing as communicated.

Now, this doesn't specify what "education-specific capabilities" they'll be adding in, but one can easily speculate.

Good morning!

Bardstown Middle School is working with +EdTechTeam (they produce the Google Summits) on doing a Google Certified Educator Bootcamp for our teachers. The Bootcamps are preparatory courses for teachers who want to move forward and become officially Certified in either Level 1 and/or Level 2.

Teachers, coaches, and/or administrators who sign up will be given the royal treatment for the day as they discover new material and prepare for their exams. Support is also given after the Bootcamp as the attendees are studying for the exam. EdTechTeam’s presenters will stay in contact via email and a G+ Community to make sure everyone is taken care of.

We are offering a Level 1 Bootcamp and we are opening registration to anyone who would like to attend. The always amazing +Donnie Piercey will be your presenter for the day!

EdTechTeam Bootcamps have a registration site for our event at: edtech.team/Bardstown
