Freebie Friday: Hallowe’en Bingo

 We LOVE Halloween.  We are busily are getting our costumes prepped to be in New York’s Halloween parade.  We have our house decorated and we are in right spirit.  We kicked off the Hallowe’en season by heading up up to Sleepy Hollow, New York a few weeks ago to nerd out at Washington Irving’s home (the author of A Legend of Sleepy Hollow).

Classroom Organization: Google Classroom

google-classroomYesterday, Google launched Classroom as an app, which is currently available for both Android and iOS. With the mobile app extension of Classroom, students are now able to take and upload photos and share, integrate and streamline content from other apps.  For example, teachers and students alike could integrate class notes from  Evernote or scanned documents from Genius Scan into their Classroom Framework. In addition, the new app edition now offers archiving so you are able save the content from old classes and offline caching allowing students’ access to the content even when they aren’t connected to the internet.  These two features hold huge merit for authentic tech integration into a real life learning environments since today’s schools and learners still don’t have ubiquitous access to the internet.  So basically in short, once again Google absolutely nails it.

In celebration of this development I have another article up on the Yellin Center Blog which highlights the efficacy of the entire Google Classroom for managing a paperless, 21st century learning environment. You can find the article here.
