The Q&A from Google Slide's audience tools is an exciting new feature that I've been playing with since it came out. Yesterday I was presenting a session and was showing Research under the tools menu and spotted Q&A History! Sure enough, that's what I found.
This is a survey of interest from Google in having an annual license option vs a life-of-the-device option.
Currently Chromebook management licenses are for the life of the device, however in a 1:1 situation that life is very much shortened. I raised the concern that this is costing our school quite a bit of money since we have a 2 year replacement cycle, and they listened.
Annual License for Education - Google Management Console - Interest FormThis form is to submit interest in subscribing to an annual license (vs. Lifetime device license) for use with Chromebooks managed under an education domain in the Google Admin Panel.
This product does not exist, and responses will be used for market research purposes.

I am creating a teacher PD program with digital badges and G+. Might use google classroom to organize badge paths. I would love to connect with someone who has experience using badges for PD. Still so much that confuses me - like where each teacher will store badges. I know Mozilla back pack but would that be overload with G+, classroom, and badges for a staff of widely varying tech comfortability?
+Colleen Murray - I'd love to Hangout with you about this. I spotted the same need a while back and so for the past year have been building a badge-based platform which is designed to be super-easy to use both for learners and for course-builders. You can think of it as 'YouTube with badges', although it works equally happily with Slides, PDFs or any other content. It's free to add free content, but has options for creating paid content too. I'm on London time but happy to talk anytime if that sounds interesting.
