Good morning!  We are planning a 1:1 Chromebook Pilot at the 7th grade level this fall.  Would anyone be willing to share samples of user agreements, contracts, guides, etc.?  Thank you in advance for any advice or information!

Has anyone attended the New Media Conference in the past? I work in informal education with a special interest in 3D printing, tinkering/making, electronics and practical technology. Would this conference be a good fit or do you have other recommendations?

I'm attending the Constructing Modern Knowledge Conference in Boston on July 8 - 11.

I think it fits with what you're looking for.

I found this online resource that will convert text to binary and binary to text. http://www.binarytranslator.com/index.php

I have been told that Google Translate can do this, but I haven't been able to find a way to do it. Is this possible with Google Translate?

Are there competing Google-recognized organizations that offer Google Summits?
I am working through AppsEvents (http://www.appsevents.com/) for the CT summit, but just came across EdTechTeam Global Summits (http://www.gafesummit.com/) today. They look surprisingly similar.

What does this really mean? I downloaded the workflows add on to show admins and noticed this in the you give permission section...
"More info
Send email that appears to have been sent by you (e.g., from your email
address)"

I am thinking you are giving permission for the app to send you document via workflows to the others you've listed to approve the document.

I want to clarify because for some admins who are new to drive it may concern them....

Google Geo really wants feedback from educators on their tools for education. Please provide input and share with others as it will guide their product development and available features for schools.

We recently purchase 30 Chromebooks, which will be shared among multiple grade levels and students.

What is the best set up for a Chromebook with multiple users? 

The Chromebooks will not be assigned to specific students. It will be shared among multiple classrooms and students. But, we want students to be able to login to their Google Account, and when they are done, have them logged out (preferably automatically).

I have 10 chromebooks that I setup in my GAFE domain as a public kiosk. These devices are used in the media center and are available to any student. It boots up and it does not prompt to sign in. The student can go to the Internet and login to the domain.

Our assistant superintendent uses a Google Calendar. He wants his secretary to be able to make changes to it when he is out of his office and in schools. If there is a meeting cancellation, time change of a meeting or appointment, etc. he wants to be notified of the changes by a text message or other alert without his secretary having to sent the text. Is there a way to do this?

On my own Google Calendar, if I change a Wednesday 8:00 am meeting to Friday, I still get a reminder for the Wednesday morning meeting. Is this a bug in Google Calendar? If so, that could be part of our problem.

At our school: We use 2 domains... one for staff and one for students.

We recently purchased 30 chrome-books for SBAC testing and they need to be set up and enrolled for Kiosk mode. For this and larger scale 1 to 1 implementation - should all chromebook be enrolled in staff or student domain?

Finally a marginal solution for @Google teachers everywhere! 
Margins have long been a problem with Google Docs, as many an English teacher can attest to. In this video, Kevin Brookhouser shares how you can marginalize your friends with Google Docs! Enjoy!

Anyone pay for ISTE and/or ASCD memberships? Is it worth it?

I definitely think that ISTE is worth, especially if you plan on attending the conference.

I used to be a member of ASCD, but I found that the magazine subscription was not worth the membership fee and thats all I pretty much used it for. If you plan to attend the ASCD conference, then it may be worth it. I am a teacher, and I found the magazine articles to be interesting and not necessarily just written for leadership positions.

Domain question.. Our school purchased a new domain name which we have set up for our GAFE account. 
We were using a different domain when e got started with GAFE in Jan 2013. Now we want to switch to the official domain that we will use going forward ( we will be 1:1 with chromebooks next year)

I know the switch will be messy for those already on the other account. Are there any trips or tricks? I am mostly concerned about the teacher and student drive accounts and their gmail.

Thanks in advance

Hi Barbara - Mike has given you good advice. If you are serious about migrating then you should budget for a company that specializes in the process.  This isn't an uncommon problem - just think about what corporate mergers have to do. That said, it requires expertise. I'd go to the Google Apps Marketplace and shop around, you'll find a number of well rated options there.
