Google URL Shortener Posted by Michael Hermanto, Software Engineer, Firebase We launched the Google URL Shortener back in 2009 as a way to help people more easily share links and measure traffic online.

I'd rather see what students create to express their answer to a driving question than just read a summary of the project. I can find loads project ideas and descriptions online, but it’s much harder to find quality end products by students. I've spent quite some time searching all over the internet for end products.

Thanks to one of those serendipitous hallway conversations with a parent/co-worker, I was finally able to figure out how to make it work using dropbox! To read more about how to create basic QR codes that aren’t linked to videos, visit this page on this website. To learn how to attach a video to a QR code, keep reading! We took our annual Fall trip to the pumpkin patch last week. As usual, the kids had loads of fun.

An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice iPad Published on January 30th, 2015 | by Mark Anderson In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite a fan of the iPad (the Lollipop Nexus 9’s not too bad either).
