Finally, screen recording made easy in Chrome (and for Chromebooks, that don't have Java!)

Meet the Quokka - The happiest little animal on the planet.

This cute critter sure has the #FridayFeeling . How on earth can the Quokka be listed as threatened?!

Cool post on using Google docs in He teaching...
 
Why 21st Century Teachers Prefer Google Docs

+Keith Hamon does a great job of explaining why Google Docs provides a superior 21st Century teaching and learning environment to MS Word docx files, especially when it comes to easy sharing, spotting plagiarism, enabling peer editing, facilitating research, and enabling access from anywhere, anytime on any device. Other benefits like automatic saving and simultaneous editing by multiple users, neither of which are part of the Microsoft cloud alternative Office 365, are great features too.

Thanks to +John Pearce for spotting this.

The Survey Monkey is dead. Long live the Google forms!
 
Google Forms, refreshed

Today we’re launching a more robust, powerful version of Google Forms. Just as you can in Docs, Sheets, and Slides, now you can invite others to work simultaneously with you as you create and edit a form—or chat with the group about your ideas without ever leaving the app. With new features like auto-save, undo/redo, and keyboard shortcuts, it’s easier to get stuff done quickly in Forms. 

The new update will be rolling out over the next few days. Read the full blog post for more details at http://goo.gl/Wa2lv, or watch the video below for a tour of the new Forms. 

Keep an eye on our page this week as we highlight some of our favorite Forms productivity tips—plus share details about an opportunity to Hangout with the engineers behind Forms!

Useful and in-depth explanation on how to get the most from Drive.
Google Drive, and the apps in it--Docs, Sheets, and Slides--are great for people looking for a simple Office suite. It's free, makes collaboration easy, and pretty much anyone can use it. But if you're used to something more traditional, like Microsoft Office, you may be hesitant to use it. Here's how to make Google Drive work more like the desktop suites you're used to.

Big cats are just cats - they also love boxes! I love the lion's box is completely crushed!

Confused cat.
 
Kitty doesn't know what to do with the butterfly that landed on its paw.
