Google EDU Canada blog https://canada.googleblog.com/ is writing a feature on Edmonton Public schools, since we were the first SD in Canada to use Chromebooks, and remain one of the largest and most prolific users of Chromebooks and G Suite for EDU.
I'm looking for feedback that may be included in the blog. The question:
*Are Chromebooks improving the learning in your classroom? How? What differences have you noticed? *

I will follow up if they select any of your quotes for the article. You can post quotes here, or email me directly.

Other suggestions.

After a few years of sticking with essentially the same design, Google Calendar on the web is getting a makeover today. That means a fresh new color palette and a design in line with Google’s Material Design scheme, but also — and more importantly — a responsive layout that smartly adjusts your calendar to the size of your browser window.

Thanks to the TIPS team for inviting +Colleen Chwedoruk, Consultant and myself to be a part of the last COP. While we shared a number of resources as alternatives to textbooks, I want to highlight the Online Reference Centre! If you are feeling overwhelmed with options, start there! They have done curriculum mapping for social studies and science from K-12 (except grade 12 social studies).

Our presentations are now properly linked in the agenda.
