Short notice, but of definite interest to those who are hoping for additional PD funding for educators!
 
President Obama's FY2016 budget requests $200 million for  Educational Technology State Grants to help ensure teachers and leaders have the skills and tools to use technology effectively to improve instruction and personalize learning. Learn more: http://tech.ed.gov/eett/

Don't miss Tony's generous offer. Midnight tonight and the app goes back to full price! http://goo.gl/WPgj8M 
 
Wow! Making a paid app free is one way to get a lot of downloads. After one day of the temporary price decline, +Stick Around ranks #8 in free apps in the U.S. App Store for Education.

Do you know if something has changed on Google Sites since you made this video? I just tried to do this using your excellent instructions, but the only thing that shows up on my site is a link to the Khan Academy site itself. No video window appears. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi Roxann, Something has changed.  After you follow the steps in the video, if it doesn't show up see if there is a shield in the top right corner of your address bar.  If there is, click on and click unload safe scripts.  This is new from google, whenever you add a third party element, such as an iframe which is used to embed an outside video.  Students need to be taught this too as it seems to be here to stay. It's supposed to be a security feature but really just adds another step since I know everything I put up is safe.  Nothing else has changed. THe only other thing I'd check is that you copied the embed code and not just the link.  Let me know if it still doesn't work.

Total newbie with Android devices. I have an Asus Nexus 7 model Me370t. I am assuming that's a 2012 1st gen model. Is that correct? The device has a bad charger port (heard that's a common problem with micro port chargers) and am wondering where I might find a reasonably priced replacement. The only options I am finding are around $65 (charging port and headphone jack are connected, right?) That's really expensive, IMHO. I see there are wireless chargers available, but the device must be QI enabled. Is the Nexus 7 device I have QI enabled? Would this be a viable option for regular charging, rather than buying the high priced repair parts? I've read mixed reviews on using them with 2nd gen Nexus 7 tablets, but haven't read much of anything in regard to the Me370t. I appreciate any help with my questions. Thanks!

No paperwork--not even sure when it was purchased, as it was used when I got it.

Please share! Just finished putting the final silent auction list together for Diana Ferry's cancer benefit, which is tomorrow, Sat. Nov. 8th at The Woods in Green Bay, WI from 1-6 p.m. We have 108 amazing packages of items for you to bid on! From Packer tickets and signed memorabilia, gift certificates for massages, hair styles, dinners and more, to items that would make GREAT Christmas gifts--we've had them donated by many generous friends and family. COME DO YOUR HOLIDAY SHOPPING, buy a great bowl of delicious chili, purchase some tasty home baked goodies from the bake sale, listen to great music and socialize with some fabulous people. If you can't make it, but might like to place a bid on an item in absentia, let me know and I can email the list to you. There is a fund set up for Diana at Associated Bank, if you'd just like make a cash donation.  
Hope to see you there!!
