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!*

I recently finished a User's Guide for Classroom that reflects the changes that have been made over the summer and during the fall. It has a companion, time-stamped video as well. It may be helpful for new users and/or users who have yet to switch from the previous iteration of Classroom.

Looking for a FREE math app for practicing multiplication facts. Asking for a 2nd grade teacher. Any suggestions?

We're piloting the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, and I am working with a teacher in an autism classroom to find AAC that's compatible with this device. In other words, we're looking for an equivalent Proloquo2go. I know that Chromebook now support Android apps. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm also wondering if anyone knows if you can use BoardMaker on a tablet. Thanks for any and all input.

Reflecting on a Student-Centered Learning Experience
A focus on lesson design to support learners. The lesson design could be modified. My example is connected to time and Earth System concepts.

Looking for resources/sites to record student created podcasts. Must be free for education and work in Chrome OS.
Any ideas?

I'm looking for "out of the box" ideas for providing learning opportunities for teachers. I'm sure this question has been asked (frequently), but can you point me in the right direction to search this group or add your favorites in the comments? Thank you in advance! :-)
