Google Debuts Classroom, An Education Platform For Teacher-Student Communication Google is tackling the persistent need in education for better software with Classroom, a new tool launching in beta preview to help teachers make, collect and track student assignments, and to help them better communicate with their classes.

Basically, Google has taken a process that many were already using and streamlined it to make it more useful.

Terrorism: What have schools done? - News - Special Coverage NEW YORK, July 16, 2002 — More than 8,000 students were evacuated from schools near the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, and scenes of parents rushing through the chaos to retrieve their children shook up moms and dads everywhere. But the attack spawned few specific changes in school safety procedures, which had only recently been overhauled after a wave of fatal school shootings.

Adventure Narratives for EFL ESL Students For a long time now I've really admired and been fascinated by the work of AmanitaDesign. They have a really unique approach and I love the way they blend photographic textures with cartoon images. I also find their games quite addictive and that's I quality I always look for when trying to find stimulating materials for students, so I've been looking at how these games could used for language development.

The player has to click various elements of the screen and find out how to help Samorost change the direction of the asteroid and save his planet.
