Enough with the deconstruction of public schools, please tell your representatives to vote no on HR5.
It has been reported that the US House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 5, the "Student Success Act," on Friday, February 27th. The bill, which is the House's version of the long overdue reauthorization of No Child Left Behind, was rushed through the House Education and the Workforce Committee with no public hearings. The bill is deeply flawed, and raises many concerns for public education allies. There are four crucial issues: Requires th...

Hawaii friends, we are very close to getting citizen-financed elections...need your help to pressure the legislature to do the right thing with HB 1481.  This would put Hawaii on the map for the all the right reasons (for once).

Use this page to send email in support!

Usage Scenarios  - 
 
Question: I am interested in using Glass as a heads-up display while teaching a class.  I use Blackboard Collaborate to share a web conference between a face-to-face group and an online group - I'd love to see the text chat window in Glass.  Having never tried Glass, is this possible?

Collaborate has an Android app, but is that relevant?  Seems that apps must be Glass-specific.

Android tablets can be made to act as a second monitor to Windows or OSX computers (via several apps), possible with Glass?

+Paul McKimmy Oh man I hear ya about the vendor integration with the student accounts. Always the sticking point with everything.  I just convinced the students we were "going rogue" and "it was cool"  ;}  Also I showed them how blackboard tracked them and that freaked them out ;)

I want to say "about time", but I'll be positive and say Thank You, Google!
 
We’ve been listening to your feedback, and we’re happy to say that we now offer support for importing all three major ODF (Open) file formats: .odt files for documents, .ods for spreadsheets, and .odp for presentations. http://goo.gl/P8T2Oz

Not only that, but we’re wrapping up the year with a few more Office-friendly improvements: we support more complex SmartArt from older Powerpoint presentations, and last week’s updates are also now import/export friendly, with support for merged cells in Word and slide numbers in Powerpoint.

I hope Google supports odg (Drawing) also.  It's very handy for making flowcharts and diagrams.

It's time to take back our democracy.  Please pledge to this crowd-funding effort: a superPAC for legislators that commit to enacting campaign finance reform!
