Blast from the past
I guess 2013 isn't that far in the past, but so much has happened for me both personally and professionally that I forgot all about this blog's existence until yesterday. I'm not ready to maintain multiple blogs right now, but I didn't want anyone to think ...

Anyone have any suggestions for this? I'm working on opening Hangouts for the students so that I can screenshare with the support folks, but in the meantime...
I had what I thought was a good idea- a teacher wanted her students to collaborate on a Classroom assignment and she wanted it accessible for the Classroom, without students having to take several clicks through their drive to find the shared doc. So, the student went to the assignment, chose "add", created a doc, shared the doc with their teammates, but when the teammates try to access it, it's appearing as a ".gdoc" and not opening. see screenshots below. Even in their drives, it shows up as a .gdoc and they can't open them. Any ideas?

Blog post on my experience with #googlecardboard  I see so much potential for this in education!

Looking for ideas and examples of ways to use Google Classroom and/or Chromebooks in a middle-school math classroom. Trying to change a fixed mindset and move away from worksheets (but I'm not a math teacher so I'm not being very convincing). I've been getting lots of resistance- mathtype is too hard, showing work is too hard, etc.

Anyone have any thoughts on this teacher request? "Student want to create a calendar where there are buttons in the squares and when you click the button you hear a voice recording or see a video of what they did that day." BEst tools for this before I reinvent the wheel?

I'm looking for an app that allows students to solve two and three digit addition and subtraction problems it would ideally also include a number line to help students any thoughts? Can be paid, but free is ideal!

Had a strange thing happen today- a teacher was in Sites (within our GAFE domain) and she went to insert an image from her Drive, but instead of her photos or folders showing up, she instead got all of the pictures that are shared with everyone in the domain. There wasn't an easy way to view her images without going into folders and then the breadcrumbs seem backwards- see screen grab. I tried this with my GAFE account and the same thing happened. Any thoughts on how this can be changed?

Is it possible to take a ppt Jeopardy game and transfer it to another viewing method- like Google slides or something else that would allow it to retain the interactivity of the game?
