I see this in many districts I work with. As new devices are brought in, someone has the "talk". Do not break them, if you take them home and they break you will owe us. Do not use it for anything personal. They talk about in...

Have you tried #Geniushour  in your company or school? I personally love the idea, which was inspired by Google. Gmail was just one of the results of Google allowing it's engineers to spend 20% of their time to work on any pet project that they want.
Thoughts about #Geniushour  ?
I get a lot of questions about Genius Hour. The first (and most basic question) is where do I start? Then the follow up questions usually fall in this order: What happens if the students don't come up with any ideas? How do you keep them on task? Finally, the last question- What happens when ...

As our world becomes more global, geography is becoming an important skill for our students to master. How can we help our students become masters of location? Why not engage them differently with a game called Geospy? You ta...

About this community

The EdTech Google+ community is a place where educators, technologists, students, researchers, connoisseurs and enthusiasts can discuss the multifaceted role of technology in education. As an industry leading resource for EdTech related communications, technologies, practices, research and methodology, we hope this space is a collaborative and open resource for the world to share their stories, research and findings in educational technology. As of late, the community has sustained significant growth, and is expected to continue. For that reason, we aim to revitalize the submission process to encourage a more easily navigated and rewarding experience for users. Ultimately, your posts and submissions should help contribute to the intellectual growth of this community which represents a larger movement. We have carefully researched what makes a community succeed, what makes them thrive, and what makes them fail. We want you to see this community as a place where you can grow, converse, question and laugh about things that matter to you and ideas that will move our world forward. We've put together an Open Community Constitution (OCC) to guide you when contributing, posting, sharing and interacting with the community. This OCC is a living document meant to guide you when posting meaningful, purposeful content that contributes to the community. Expectations of a post: 1. Post must be related to role of technology and how it relates to education, classrooms, pedagogy, instruction and learning. 2. Does not solely promote a product, individual or institution with no benefit to the entire community 3. Post must have relevant introductory text related to the post, link, photo or video 4. Posts and updates should be in the best interests of education technology leadership, research both academic and commercial 5. Above all, make it fun and keep it classy. - Your EdTech Moderators Adopted: September 9, 2013

Anyone know of any online assessment tools with the same kind of functionality as doctopus/goobric that isn't quite so clunky? I really like what Schoology does but I don't want to shift back to it after moving to Google Classroom.

When do Teachers get to "spend" their Data? http://buff.ly/1PXJGd5
#bigdata  +EDUKWEST 
If you're a teacher, you've been making extensive deposits into “data banks” for years. But how can teachers "spend" their deposit asks Randall Dennis.

Just finished a PD session for our Counselors. They were looking for apps, tools, and resources to design flyers, presentations, and posters as well as ramp up communications with students and parents. I have put together all of the tips, apps, and links here... Would love to hear about what tools your counselors are using too! #counseling   #counselors

I use it daily but the grade reporting feature is awful. It does not show you a students possible points or points earned only a percentage of published scores or total. This is bad if you have to enter grades into another program. Other than that I think it's fantastic.

Sometimes people have misconceptions about blended learning. Have you heard any of these paradigms that make people forget the benefits of blended learning?
Are you and your students taking advantage of all the benefits of blended learning? Or are there some paradigms at your school that are screwing it up? Before you answer "No, we have no such paradi...
