GroupZap — Welcome Google Tone in the Classroom Google just released Google Tone, a new Chrome extension that allows someone to send a URL to all other Google Tone users within earshot. Clicking on the Google Tone icon emits a series of pleasant chimes that are received and then interpreted (via microphone) on the other devices which prompt the other users to open the broadcasted URL. I see HUGE potential in the classroom. Imagine the amount of time a teacher could save by simply broadcasting the URL to all student devices rather than writing it on the whiteboard, publishing it to a website/LMS, etc. Of course, there are other Chromebook management resources (gScholar, Hapara, Insight) that offer the same functionality...for a price.

The Principled Approach 2 Technology is increasingly ubiquitous in the world around us.

But research studies aside, the million dollar questions for teachers are: How Can I Podcast In My Completely Windows Based Classroom? Congratulations!

Multiple Google Forms to One Spreadsheet The magic of Google Forms is the ability to view all of your Form data in a spreadsheet. I use Google Forms a considerable amount in my classroom. Google Forms basically allows me to be paperless. Any data I need to collect, including student work, I utilize a Google Form. This means that I have multiple spreadsheets that I need to access when I need data.

5 Ways to Teach with YouTube I bought Minecraft for my 7 year old son and asked him if he needed help with it. “No, I just looked it up on YouTube.” We all know that YouTube is a great source for tutorial videos. 8 Google Forms Formative Assessment Tips If you use Google Forms for formative assessment quizzes here are some tips for managing the resulting spreadsheet.
