Hey, everyone... you may have seen the news that Google+ is being closed down for consumers. From a professional standpoint, I know there are many other community tools out there that can help meet our members' needs. From a personal perspective, I'm kind of crushed. :( Over 5 years and 5,000+ members together... there have been a lot of resources shared and support given in this space, and for that, I am so grateful. This community will continue to stay open... Google announced the process to shut it down will be complete by next August. I'll be surveying this group to see which possibilities for movement to another space would best support your learning. If you have any ideas, feel free to share below. Thanks so much for being here and for helping make this space an important resource for so many.

Update 10/10 - sent out to G Suite Admin today: Hello G Suite Administrator,

We recently announced that we are winding down the consumer version of Google+ over the next 10 months. This change does not impact your usage of Google+ as a G Suite for Education customer. Google continues to invest in new features for Google+ for our G Suite for Education customers, and we’ll share more details on the G Suite blog in the coming days. You can expect the following:

-A fresh, clean look for the education version of Google+ on the web and mobile
-Additional capabilities for admins to be able to review and moderate posts made by employees, if needed
-New admin dashboards to view post analytics and engagement metrics

*This community is owned and managed by a non-Edu account. So I'll continue to be looking into the best way to migrate to a different space. Thanks for all of your feedback thus far!*

Does anyone has a teacher using gifs regularly? I have a PE teacher who uses gifs as station warm ups. Unfortunately, the gifs he is using now only run for about 1 minute then stop. Suggestions?

Looking to start an Introduction to Computer Science course in our High School. Any suggestions on programs, resources, etc. that should be included? It will most likely be a teacher who has never taught such a course. Thanks!

Does anybody have any thoughts or insight on the Midwest Education Technology Community Conference that is February 11-13, 2019? We (the two technology coaches from my district) are considering attending or need to find a different conference to use our PD money on. We are open to suggestions. We are from Indiana, and our only concern with the METC Conference is that it seems like it focuses mostly on schools in Missouri. Other than that, it looks like it would be pretty awesome. Thanks!

Does anyone have a list of iPad apps they love for preschool/kindergarten that are good, simple and well articulated, for things like initial consonant sounds / phonics, and numeracy and early reading / decoding, sight words, matching, sorting and categorizations? I'm asking for a special education teacher in my district. Thank you!

Hypothetically, a student in your district makes a poor choice with social media. Do you/does your district require they go through any kind of digital citizenship curriculum or activity to turn the poor choice into a learning experience? I know of common sense media but wondered about any other course/modules folks might be using?

I have an AP Euro teacher who wants to use a Word Cloud website for important vocabulary from her unit. She wants the most important words to be really big and the less important words to be smaller. She does not want the words duplicated. She will print these and hang them around the room when completed. She has tried wordart.com but we are having issues with the sizing. Does anyone have word cloud/word art websites that they like? Thank you!
