Have you been wondering how to get in touch with classrooms around the world? The connected classrooms (Google + Community) Workshop is filled with teachers who are also using Google apps and want work, collaborate, debate and Hangout with other classes around the world. Click on the link to join.
Signing into Chrome
Here is a quick screencast on how to sign into the Chrome Browser, which is essential if we want our preferences, bookmarks and extensions to follow us. This is also a very important step for our students who are often jockeying between school and personal accounts.
New Google Sites
Google site has been updated and now he's showing off it's fancier redesign. This very quick video just goes over some of the highlights.
Just a very brief overview how you can use the screencastify extension. (one of my favorites!) I have used this to leave great feedback for students without having to leave a lot of texts. This is also a great tool when you want to start flipping some of your instruction, or for students to record themselves speaking in Target languages, or even having a synchronous communication with students from around the world in different time zones.
