I'm excited to announce the first "Google Camp OKC" will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017, from 8 am to 4:30 pm at Casady School in Oklahoma City. Registration is just $25 and includes lunch. Presenters sharing at least 2 sessions will receive complimentary registration and some cool Google swag. Presenters traveling more than 100 miles 1 way can receive travel (gas receipts) and lodging reimbursement.

We would LOVE to have lots of Google savvy Kansas educators help make this inaugural Google education event a success! The proposal submission form is online now, online registration (which will be limited to 200) will be available by tomorrow. Please help us spread the word! Let me know if you have any questions.

I have an older Chromebook (Acer C740) that has a broken power port. The power charger won't push into it, I'm not sure what happened.

I know repairs on older Chromebooks like this can almost be as expensive as a new device... What do you recommend for a repair vendor to use that is reasonable pricewise and does good/speedy work?

We've had good luck with Trinity3 for our Chromebooks but this is one we didn't buy from them, and I thought I'd check on other vendors too...

Welcome to episode 106 of the EdTech Situation Room from September 5, 2018, where technology news meets educational analysis. This week Jason Neiffer (@techsavvyteach) and Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) reflected on the 20th anniversary of Google and the 10th anniversary of the Chrome web browser, and the long way we've come in the ensuing years. Other topics included "the technology correction" with an excellent article arguing for the breakup of Facebook based on current U.S. anti-trust law, proposed revisions to anti-trust law which could be applied to large technology companies including Facebook, Amazon, Google and Apple, and this week's Congressional testimony by technology leaders in Washington D.C. The ethical dimensions of corporate developed and sold spyware, the question of liability for developers when their spyware is used by governments against human rights advocates and political opponents, and the ongoing advocacy by Western governments for security "back doors" in technology platforms were also discussed. The threat posed by new European copyright laws to the open Internet, Apple's upcoming event on September 12th and leaks suggesting new iPhone models and a 4th generation Apple watch, and the success of the Google Pixelbook in sparking the availability of higher end Chromebooks rounded out the show's articles. Geeks of the Week included the GeoMap website and application Relive, and CloudReady by Neverware for breathing new Chrome life into older computers. Check out edtechSR.com/links for all shownotes, including those listed below. Please follow us on Twitter @edtechSR for updates, and join us LIVE on Wednesday nights if you can at 10 pm Eastern / 9 pm Central / 8 pm Mountain / 7 pm Pacific or 3 am UTC.

We have some teachers interested in getting a license for software that will let them observe / monitor student Chromebook screens during class, like we can do with NetOp in our Windows lab or using ARD for Macs. Looks like Hapara and GoGuardian can both do this. Are there other software options we should consider for this function / use? Anyone have recommendations / experiences to share on this? THANKS!

We're looking at using the Google Applied Digital Skills curriculum https://applieddigitalskills.withgoogle.com w/ middle school students next year. Anyone have experience using this with kids last year? I'm especially interested in how teachers can view groups of students & their progress... Does this work similar to Khan Academy with mentor/coach view permissions?
