Incredibly proud to be working with talented teachers from DC Public Schools. This is our third year partnering with them, and we're thrilled to see them bringing Bootstrap to their students!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share the Kickstarter project we're currently running. Our goal is not to only create an appealing visual dictionary appropriate for beginning Latin students, but also to seriously change how ancient Rome is traditionally represented in visual resources. 

Looking beyond print to leverage things like images via roll-over tooltips, etc, we really think this could be a powerful way towards making Latin less about translation and more about real reading and comprehension.

If you can pitch in and help make this a reality, that'd be fantastic! Otherwise, sharing and spreading the word will go a long way. Thanks in advance!

Will Chrome rule in education? Which applications are missing?

My primary computer is a laptop, but I've already abandoned my tablet for a chromebook (as has my ten-year old grandson) and my next desktop will be the recently announced LG Chromebase -- an all-in-one running the Chrome OS and browser -- or something similar (like a chromebox with a nice keyboard and display). The Chrome-based machines are winners for my home application mix (shown below) and are taking off in the education market. Will they displace desktops, laptops and tablets? Which applications are missing?

iPads and Chromebooks are two different types of devices.  Although you may do some of the same things on both of them, there are some activities that are better handled on only the tablet or on only the Chromebook.  For this reason, I'm also using iPads in my 1:1 Chromebook classroom.  #Edtech   #chromebook   #ipad  
Stop me if you have heard this argument before.We have decided to buy Chromebooks for our students because they do 90% of what students can do on a typical computer at 1/3 the cost. Chris Lehman used it to justify his sweetheart deal with Dell to move the Science Leadership Academy to a Chromebook e

Hello! I'm trying to find a podcast like system for my blended learning videos. Students could "subscribe" to my videos and it downloads to their Chromebooks automatically while they are connected to WiFi at school. They can then view the video online or offline if need be. Is there anything close to that? I've been trying experimenting with RSS feeds but their is no app that will "download" the video to their device. I have also tried pocket like apps but I think they are mostly unsuccessful with videos.  Does anyone know of an app that can do this or have an alternative?  Maybe kind of like Google Drive Offline but with videos?  Thanks in advance.

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
 
The potential of Augmented Reality is yet to be unleashed. As in most cases, the early adopters of imminent technologies are usually those that benefit from them the most. Are you into AR already?
If you are not leveraging and deploying augmented reality as part of your marketing plan, you are missing out big time.

Calling educators who use class blogs!

How do you style the names of your blog each year? Do you add the school year such as class5-2014.htrblogs.net or do you keep as class5.htrblogs.net and rename or archive the old blog? Looking for a future-proof strategy!

I use KidBlog for my classes, and set up a new class each year.  It uses the name you give your whole class as part of the URL, so it automatically changes every year (I usually try to incorporate the year just to keep things straight!).

Pi-Bot: A Great Kit for Learning Arduino Robotics! | http://bit.ly/VJIJNE

Using the kit, student inventors and tinkerers learn the mechanical aspects of building a basic robot and learn how to program it using C.   From a brief review, my kids and I have had a lot fun putting it together.
