Peter Vogel24,368ICT / Ed Tech CircleIt's a long weekend here in Canada (we celebrate Thanksgiving well ahead of our neighbours to the south). Here is a circle of people with a passion for technology in education and who have shared that enthusiasm here on Google+. And that makes for an ideal group to share their energy with others perhaps just starting to explore the rich environment of G+. Consider this a Thanksgiving gift from Canada. 2012-10-07 00:18:36420315CC G+

Peter Vogel17,847Tech Ed CircleI am sharing the circle below for those who are looking for educators and those who actively write about education with an emphasis on information and communications technologies (let's call it tech ed for short). Just prior to posting this I used the Uncircle+ Chrome extension to comb the circle for inactive G+ accounts, resulting in the removal of around 60 from an initial set of 470. However, it appears that Uncircle+ is not completely reliable. At least one account remains that is apparently non-existent and a few accounts remain that were inactive during the period I specified. I wanted Uncircle+ to identify accounts with no activity since January 1.2012-04-09 01:23:424056313CC G+

I think Google Classroom is going to be a hit, however I finally got to take a long look at how it works and was disappointed by the workflow.    The turn-it-in feature was something I think education needed, and the swapping owners during the process seems like a great way to do things, but it does raise some concerns for me:

1. The workflow attempts to mimic the paper model of the classroom.   This is what irks me the most, because it is counter to the collaborative nature of google docs.   The current GC model does not encourage live collaboration, in fact it seems to discourage it.    One of the best things about Google Docs is that it allows for redefinition of paperless workflow.   GC turn-in workflow is nothing more than substitution.    When looking at GC from a SMAR model approach.

Beta testers wanted!
The add-on version of the script "MCQ tests: email score & correction" is available thanks to the hard work of +laszlo de brissac 
mcq tests email score correction | scriptsexamples

Our motto: "Grade reporting doesn’t get easier than this."
For now on, you won't find it in the add-on store. It's available to anyone with the link until we are sure it is perfect, so please try and give feedbacks. The best is to start from an empty sheet and just follow the instructions in the sidebar.

+Kyle Horst If you can help with a nice logo we would be very happy!

Does anyone know of a way I can run a Chrome Browser extension on a Chromecast?   Not as a cast but directly running on it.   I want to use it for a http://www.risevision.com/ digital signage player.

I am pretty sure it cannot do it out-of-th-box, but I didn't know if there was a mod or a way to flash the chromecast to make it possible.

Texthelp’s Highlighting Tools add-on in Google Docs lets you highlight key areas of your document to collect, group and learn from later. By “collecting highlights” you can extract them into a new document for students or educators to review. http://goo.gl/qfvyrb

Has anyone figured out a way to protect a Form from being shared with other users?

1. I can use pages and text validation to force a password to be entered, but sharing a password with a link is just as easy as sharing the link.

2. I know I could require sign-in to the domain to access the form, but they would be sharing it with others in the same domain so it doesn't matter.

Hey all! First time gClassFolders user and loving it. One slight problem: after creating about 50 or so folders, I now get the following error in every status box: "Assignment Folder created, Error with Student email: folder created but not shared." The folders are there, but I must manually share them all with my students. When I do so, I get one of those annoying Word Verification Captchas. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

An almost complete teardown and internal examination of the Lenovo Thinkpad 11e Chromebook. I focus on the elements that make this an extremely durable device, which may be helpful for those who are considering whether this Chromebook is worth the price premium. I have added my observations to each individual picture, so click through to view them.

UPDATE: The reason this model is so heavy compared to similar sized devices (it weighs just about the same as the previous x131e, even though it is significantly thinner) is due to the liberal use of metal for support and reinforcement at key points such as the hinge, keyboard, and trackpad. Every part of the hinge in particular appears to be strong metal, all the way to where the hinge attaches to the plastic base and LCD cover.  For those of you who already know about the build of the x131e, I have to say that this model takes... more »

On the spreadsheet that pops-up when you first install the gCF add-on it will only show the Help menu.   If the user closes that particular document and then re-opens it, the menu shows up fine.   I also checked the Chrome Developer console and no errors were being reported.

Any idea how I might fix this? or even troubleshoot this.

How to Easily Find Your Google+ Comments...

Use Google Plus SEARCH in a special way and you can find your comments (and other people's shares of your stuff, etc.)

Many people know that much of the value here in the Plus exists inside the interaction or comments that happen along with posts.

Use this technique to find your comments...
Enter a Google Plus search like this:
"Ronnie Bincer" -inurl:108210288375340023376

Where the name in quotes is Your Google Plus name and the number after the '-inurl:' text is Your Profile ID.

You can find your profile ID number by going to your 'Profile' area and snagging it from within the URL up top.

Thanks for this technique go to +Nico Gerrits who mentioned how to do it in a bunch of comments on a post by +GideonRo... more »
