Ronnie Bincer89,732Learn about the New HOA Q&A App - bring more interaction to HOAsHangouts on Air can be very interactive - It is like "Yelling at the TV" and The TV can answer back to paraphrase a friend.

Peter Vogel44,233Sharing a circle of terrific ICT educatorsHere in British Columbia we are about to head back to school. What better time to share this circle of people who share their expertise in Information and Communications Technology or Educational Technology if you prefer another label.I've been a Google+ user since day 1 and in fact I began using it, appropriately enough, while on a three-week stay at the birthplace of the World Wide Web, CERN, perhaps better known as the home of the Large Hadron Collider. I began building this circle of plussers while there. Now I must admit I haven't been good about culling dormant accounts of late so don't expect everyone in the circle to be a gem.Also, if you happen across this post and circle and wish to be included (on the basis outlined above) just send me a note.  2014-08-29 22:11:48451101
Fredrik Ax1,259The, according  to Google, 300, for me, most relevant persons in my circlesSome time ago +Erik Andersson shared his 492 most relevant people[1] which was an idea I found fun, so I'm doing the same with my 300 most relevant. But I had some trouble compiling this circle, it seems that I can only add or move 200 people around my circles per day. I wonder if Google changed that or if the number is dependent on how many you already have in your circles. Anyway, having 300 in this circle may be stupid then, because if the number is 200 some people who not already have a lot of the profiles in my this circle in theirs, will not be able to add it.Anyway, it's interesting to try to figure how Google comes up with this order of people. I agree that the top ones (when I'm viewing the circle) are absolutely relevant for me, but scrolling down I would peronally have a totally different order of people, and some that did not even make it among the top 300 I would place very high up.-- [1] https://plus.google.com/113538385219043438319/posts/WV3Uszpg9E92013-05-04 14:36:0130044035

Erik Andersson3,924Mer vårstädningJag har gått igenom min nya-cirkel som innehöll ca 900 personer och som legat orörd sen tidernas begynnelse. Det var många inaktiva som försvann och många som äntligen kunde placeras in i rätt cirkel.Här kommer en cirkel med några som jag behållit. Det är lite blandat med aktiva och en del som kanske inte postar så ofta men visar rätt inställning och försöker.För ett levande G+ skulle jag bli glad om ni kunde hjälpa mig att cirkla dessa och kanske skriva en kommentar i någon av deras poster. De som inte postat så mycket hittills kanske blommar ut med lite mer aktivitet i sitt flöde. #deladcirkel #cirkeldelning #svenskacirklar  2013-04-04 09:46:47134328

Terve +Jaana Nyström TC World Champ, miten menee?! Listen, do you know how Google Now works, especially considering the web sites you visit? For example, I get updates from this site I've visited only once I think and not from any other sites. Don't get it!

Guess what, I'm still into this TCTV #HangoutsOnAir   thing - interviews with TC:s, possibly CM:s and other cool folks. You're in, huh?!

End-to-End encryption for Gmail being developed by Google - a great initiative for sure, even though only the message body will be encrypted. Also interesting to note that there would be no way for Google to target tailored ads for those using encryption.. Can't wait for this Chrome extension to be rolled out.

Man kan lugnt konstatera att Google satsar rätt ordentligt på #GAFE ! Bland annat obegränsad lagring på Drive och max storlek på enstaka filer blir 5TB. Hoppsan!

Ever deleted Google Calendar events by mistake? Well, I have, and I promise it can really ruin your whole day - especially since there is no (Googley) way of getting that data back (that I know of). However, Spanning Undelete has been a life saver - a very, very cool service.

Is there a way to get a bird's eye view of all assignments - within a 'class' - for a single student in #Classroom  ?  Haven't thought about this earlier but that kind of sorting would be extremely useful (if I'm not missing something very obvious here). The students can get a list of all the assignments, btw.

En kollega bortom det Stora Vattnet efterlyste möjligheten att se status på alla uppgifter för en viss elev (i en viss kurs) - dvs. bättre överblick per elev. Visst saknas den här möjligheten i #Classroom  eller har jag helt missat något? Det skulle ju underlätta något otroligt.

Cool student run Demo Slam #HOA   coming up today, by #GEG  Massachusetts and +Jennifer Scheffer - check it out!

Members of the Massachusetts Google Educator Group who run student help desk courses/programs are once again connecting our students! Join us this Thursday, October 16th from 10:00 to 11:15 a.m. for the first (to my knowledge) student led demo slam. Students will have up to ten minutes to showcase a technology tool or tools in the slam. We hope you'll be able to join us live or watch the archive on YouTube! If you believe that connecting students is an important part of Connected Educator Month, then I'd encourage you to watch and share this Live On Air Event! It doesn't get anymore authentic than this! ___Cool student run Demo Slam #HOA   coming up today, by #GEG  Massachusetts and +Jennifer Scheffer - check it out!

There are top secret plans to launch a #HangoutOnAir  series focusing on #HOA  use in education - even though non-educators might find it useful as well. My closest partner-in-crime in this is the world famous #GoogleCertifiedTeacher  (way, way cool!)  +Jennifer Scheffer who apparently has figured out how to squeeze more than 24 hours into one day. Anyway, we'd need kind of a signature graphics / photo for this thing; any ideas welcome!

Hett tips till BUF/BUN Luleå

Hej på er BUF och BUN i Luleå! Det finns en grymt vass (men väldigt blyg) lärare i Luleå som gör alldeles sanslöst häftiga grejor med det som brukar kallas 'det utvidgade kollegiet', dvs. att främja kollegiala samtal både i nationell och global skala och därmed driva på skolutvecklingen något otroligt. Den här läraren har under en ganska lång tid använt sig av YouTube på ett sätt som lär vara unikt inom skolan på våra breddgrader - och kanske i hela Sverige.

Nu är det bara så att vår blyge lärare har ett stort problem: den nya, fina pc-skoldatorn orkar inte alls med det krävande arbetet som videojobbet innebär. Det skulle behövas en riktigt vass laptop så att man inte behöver skämmas för videon från Luleå, Sverige! Visserligen är denne lärare kanske inte så bildskön precis men någorlunda hyfsadvideokvalité skulle kanske göra sitt änd... more »

Hett tips till BUF/BUN Luleå

Hej på er BUF och BUN i Luleå! Det finns en grymt vass (men väldigt blyg) lärare i Luleå som gör alldeles sanslöst häftiga grejor med det som brukar kallas 'det utvidgade kollegiet', dvs. att främja kollegiala samtal både i nationell och global skala och därmed driva på skolutvecklingen något otroligt. Den här läraren har under en ganska lång tid använt sig av YouTube på ett sätt som lär vara unikt inom skolan på våra breddgrader - och kanske i hela Sverige.

Nu är det bara så att vår blyge lärare har ett stort problem: den nya, fina pc-skoldatorn orkar inte alls med det krävande arbetet som videojobbet innebär. Det skulle behövas en riktigt vass laptop så att man inte behöver skämmas för videon från Luleå, Sverige! Visserligen är denne lärare kanske inte så bildskön precis men någorlunda hyfsad videokvalité skulle kanske göra sitt ändå! Undrar om det finns möjligheter till lite sponsring? Skolan där han jobbar har - surprise! - definitivt inte en spänn, vad det nu kan bero på..

Jag lovade att inte nämna lärarens namn men det är lätt att hitta hans mästerverk: googla #BeSmartOnAir  ! Dessutom finns här en direktlänk till det senaste, publika samtalet som initierades av hans kollega Linda på Hawaii:

Heavens, Einstein really nailed it - sometimes time just accelerates in a way that's beyond belief. This was the fastest #HangoutOnAir  hour ever!

Well, thank you so much +Kim Nilsson but my voice was just barely functional - hate this sinus trouble I've got after the flu. Btw, I was using the new job pc that's been rolled out recently district-wide and it really does not cope with #Hangouts  (or any video streaming, for that part). Should have used a photo instead! Darn, I've got to get a decent laptop somehow. I think I'll write an open letter to the district folks and tell them about this great teacher connecting colleagues globally - but lacking decent tools of the trade!

Terve +Jaana Nyström TC World Champ, miten menee?! Listen, do you know how Google Now works, especially considering the web sites you visit? For example, I get updates from this site I've visited only once I think and not from any other sites. Don't get it!

Guess what, I'm still into this TCTV #HangoutsOnAir   thing - interviews with TC:s, possibly CM:s and other cool folks. You're in, huh?!

There are tons of cool podcasts out there and #AmateurTraveler  with +Chris Christensen - also see https://bloggerbridge.com/about - is definitely one of the gems for me. The recent West Sweden episode was great fun to listen to, even though I've been living in Sweden for some 35 years! Especially the coastal area there still remains to be explored for my part and, judging from what I've heard from many others as well, it is truly an amazing area. Thanks for another great episode and the superb job with all the show notes!

Jag tittar djupt, länge och väl i kristallkulan (som jag har putsat enligt bästa förmåga) och spår: inom en månad kommer det ske en hel del saker med #Classroom  . Och med  #GoogleSites  också.

Google Rocks! Hawaii #HangoutOnAir  and +Linda Lindsay coming to a browser near you early on October 8 (in Europe, that is!) with the theme Using Hangouts to connect globally. This is going to be fun - providing my new not-so-state-of-the-art job pc behaves.. If you can't catch us live, don't despair - the recording will be available on YouTube after the fact, most probably on http://bit.ly/GoogleRocksHawaiiYouTubePlaylist

Några glada EU #eTwinning #eTwinningNorden ambassadörer & kollegor i full fart under tisdagens arbete på #Djurönäset - det var en kreativ och toppenfin sammankomst på alla sätt och vis (bortsett ifrån min eländiga förkylning förstås..). Hoppas Helene inte har världshemligheter på skärmen bara :)

Kanske, kanske kommer det också bli nordisk eTwinning på YouTube framöver! Visst lovade du i en svag stund att haka på i så fall +Cecilia Manfredsson?!

Man kan lugnt konstatera att Google satsar rätt ordentligt på #GAFE ! Bland annat obegränsad lagring på Drive och max storlek på enstaka filer blir 5TB. Hoppsan!

Vilken hit det här blev, suveränt kul och intressant att höra hur +Joakim Bergeå jobbar med #GAFE  och #Hapara  i Bromma folkhögskola! Trots att jag ser ut att vara i zombie-state (vilket är sant, förkylningen har inte släppt greppet..) och att min video är extremt pixlig och blek (vilket i sin tur beror på att jag kör på en mycket gammal laptop). Det är faktiskt lite fusk att alla andra har schyssta hd-kameror! Den pc som alla - förutom jag - nu har fått här i Luleå är definitivt inget att ha i dessa sammanhang.

Jag tycker faktiskt någon borde sponsra mig med en riktigt schysst laptop, varför inte en MacBook Pro med retina-skärm och 16Gb RAM. Visst är jag värd detta?! Luleås skolchef kanske kan göra en insats, det jag gör måste vara rätt unikt på mina breddgrader - eller i hela Sverige?! Kom igen nu!

There's one single #Chrome  extension I've been using for several years that I really can't do without: #ActiveInbox  turns #Gmail   into a task management powerhouse in a way that's nothing short of amazing. The team is extremely responsive and adjusts to every Gmail update so fast that I have very rarely noticed any trouble. Kudos to +Andy Mitchell and the whole team - you guys are the best!

Ibland får jag intrycket att hela #Classroom  är lite av ett 'quick fix' på att #GAFE  aldrig skräddarsytts till skolans behov. Tiden har gått, många tredjepartsutvecklare har kommit med fungerande (men mer eller mindre nördiga) lösningar på detta men Google har mest bara sett på.  Tänket med #Classroom  är att alla lärare med tillgång till #GAFE   skall på ett väldigt enkelt sätt få till ett schysst arbetsflöde genom Drive - något som tidigare har i princip varit omöjligt - och det fungerar ju. Nu är det bara så att alla (inklusive undertecknad) vill ha mer; det saknas ju mängder med ganska viktiga bitar i hanteringen av uppgifterna och det innebär i sin tur att man måste ändå härja 'manuellt' på Drive en hel del (och det blir ändå inte riktigt hundra).

Jag gillar #Classroom  - fattas bara! - men det vore verkligen intressant att veta hur den 'road map' ser ut som Google har för projektet. Det känns ändå föga troligt att #Classroom  på något sätt skall täcka in (nästan) allt man kan göra med Drive. Hoppas verkligen att det kommer ut en API som utvecklarna får direkt tillgång till.___

Jag försökte precis redigera en uppgift, med avsikten att lägga till ytterligare ett dokument från Drive, så att varje elev skulle få en egen kopia av detta. Det blev tvärnit, det alternativet fanns inte med i redigeringsläget. Vore bra om någon kan bekräfta att det är så det fungerar! Här skulle jag i så fall definitivt vilja ha en ändring.

Andra säsongen, säsongens andra avsnitt av #DViSonAir   och min gäst denna gång är +Joakim Bergeå som till vardags jobbar på Bromma folkhögskola och är inte bortkommen med varken #GAFE  eller #Hapara   har jag för mig...

Du kan se denna #HangoutOnAir  live här på motsvarande G+ Event - och då skall också finnas möjligheten att ställa frågor - eller genom min YouTube-kanal. Denna direktlänk till YouTube skall fungera efter att vi har gått On Air: http://www.youtube.com/user/niiloa/live

I vanlig ordning kommer webbsändningen - precis som alla Hangouts On Air - automatiskt spelas in på YouTube så det borde gå bra att ta del av vår pratstund genom min YouTube-kanal också efteråt:

It took a while to get the mp3 coded because, until now, I had been fooling around with this not-so-serious free YouTube converter software which has gone wild  with aggressive ads that drive me crazy! Nah, end of story with that crap: time to get serious using #Audacity , #LAME   and the #ffmpeg  plug-in according to the pro recipe from +Jim Collison .

Thanks for that Jim, it works like a charm now that I've got it all set up! Next step is automating the process - there must be a way, huh?! Anyway, here's the mp3: http://bit.ly/BeSmartOnAir11Mp3
