New Classroom treats for much-appreciated teachers

It’s teacher appreciation week here in the U.S., and for me, that means celebrating the teacher who has had absolutely the most impact on my life: Mike Zamansky. Mr Z, as he is affectionately known, has been making Computer Science cool at Stuyvesant High School for more than 20 years, and what I learned in his classes has put me on the path I’m still on today.

So from me and everyone at Classroom to Mr. Z and every other teacher who inspires their students: Thank you for doing just that. A year ago, we marked Teacher Appreciation Week in the U.S. by telling you that Google Classroom was on its way.

New treats for teachers and students

Starting today, teachers can bring those same personal touches to Classroom by uploading their own images to use as themes. That’s just one of the little surprises we’ve sprinkled throughout Classroom to brighten your winter (or sweeten your summer, for our Southern Hemisphere friends). If you have an image you’d like to use as your theme, Classroom will help you crop it to the perfect dimensions, and automatically pick a matching class color.

And in case you don’t have a great photo to use, we’re adding 18 new images and 30 pattern themes to our gallery, so teachers have lots of options to make their classes look great.

Google Santa Tracker is back with an educational twist

They know when you are sleeping/awake. They also give you cool stuff but also freak you out a little bit sometimes. Well, Google also keeps tabs on Santa and for the umpteenth consecutive year Google is following Santa on his round the world trip from the North Pole on Christmas. This year’s tracker has some fun games to play every day but this year you might actually learn a thing or 2: This year, you’ll find an edu touch — new geography games let you explore local holiday traditions, while a new coding project teaches basic JavaScript as you help Santa and the reindeer navigate the map.

Bloom's Taxonomy Presented Visually

The student goes through the process of thinking about what to write, reflecting on course content and potentially analyzing course content using higher order thinking skills.

Google Map tools. Google Play and FanBridge Offer Musicians Free Artist Hub Accounts. Google is making it easier for U.S. artists to sell their music on the Google Play artist hub by offering free sign-up for a limited time. The Google Play artist hub is where musicians can create a Google Play store page, set the price on their music and sell direct to users. Artists get 70% of revenue and Google gets 30%. Google charges $25 for artists to sign-up for the artist hub but thanks to the fan management platform FanBridge, the sign-up fee will be waived for one week.

Existing FanBridge customers will also be able to easily create and manage their own presence on Google Play. The free offer is only available to artist’s in the United States and will run from March 27 – April 3. This is the first concentrated effort that Google has taken to drive artist adoption of its media platform. Despite a lot of early hype — and positive user reviews — the service has failed to gain a lot of traction. Street View - Gallery – Google Maps Street View – Google.
