Illustrated quizzes, anyone?

Did you know that you can embed images in a Google Form?
Today's Apps tutorial comes from educator, +Aida Awad. This video will walk you through the step-by-step process of editing the code of a form in order to insert images.

Go on, try it out.

We're excited to travel east in two weeks!
Nice work, +Timothy Welch. The Eastern Oregon Google Summit flyer was featured on the homepage of Smore this weekend. :)

We have a statewide Oregon Google Summit each fall. This year we're expanding and offering Google Summits at multiple locations and times. Tim's done a great job coordinating with Eastern Oregon University and InterMountain Education Service District to pull this together.

Go team, #ORVSD!

+Corin Richards and I are at #acpenw2012 this week. We got to talk about our favorite subject, Google Apps for Ed, and show off great examples from Oregon teachers and students.

Our slide deck is public:

+Dana Nguyen supported us through a whirlwind two years. This is one of our going-away gifts. :) There's a lot of good happening. (+Jaime Casap and +steve nelson get the hat tip for the many months of work on the Oregon contract.)
