Grafton Public Schools is getting an App!
I'm back after a long hiatus away from the blogosphere (not from my computer, that would be crazy).    A lot has happened during that time.  We've seen a bit of breakage of our Chromebooks - but still less than previous years, I'm starting to like Apple pro...

Oh and one more thing...new home screens on the web
As you hopefully saw in our post earlier today, Docs, Sheets, and Slides got some major updates to help you get work done on any device, any time, on any file. But there’s one more thing that we still need to tell you about.

Since launching the mobile apps, many of you have asked for a consistent experience on the web that makes it easy to get back to your most relevant and recently edited documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be gradually rolling out new home screens for Docs, Sheets, and Slides on the web, similar to what you have seen on mobile, at:
google.com/docs
google.com/sheets
google.com/slides

Your most recently edited documents are available right at the top, you can quickly create something new with a click on the + button, edit Office files by installing the new Chrome extension (http://goo.gl/yHbngd), and once you enable offline editing, everything on your home screen is editable even when you’re not connected to the Internet. 

Stay tuned to the links above—the new home screens will be rolling out to everyone over the next couple of weeks.

Chrome OS 40 is rolling out with new wallpapers, Wi-Fi password sync, and the snazzy File System Provider API.

The File System Provider API will soon let you access Dropbox, Amazon S3, and more from your Chrome OS devices.

#ChromeOS  
Google has announced a new stable release of Chrome OS has begun rolling out to all eligible Chrome devices.

No more homework! No more homework! (at last homework that serves no purpose).
I'm back with my final post on the inefficiency of homework
(at least at its core).  As I've
mentioned before, when done appropriately, homework isn't a terrible
thing.  But when following the
“traditional” method, it tends to take away from those things ou...

Why Homework?
Driving home following a golf outing with my father, brothers and soon to be brother-in-law, my wife repeated a story while we were out. My wife, my sister-in-law, sister and mother (a sixth grade teacher) were having a conversation about Common Core and ho...

School might be out for the summer, but Classroom is just getting started. Check out this walkthrough video for a preview of how it works for teachers and students.

More teaching. Less tech-ing.
