Segment: Tool Shoutout - An in-depth look at 1 Google product

How about showing people Reader Bundles?  A great way to package up a bunch of blogs without knowing a thing about OPML. (OPM what??)

  1. Make a blog collection in Reader, then from the dropdown menu, choose Create a Bundle.  
  2. Fill in the title and description and remove and blogs you don’t want to include, click Save.
  3. Share it using the options on the right. (the most general, but less obvious, one to use is the “add a link” option...)

Here is my collection of Google related stuff..

Segment “Ask a GCT”:  googleeducast@edreach.us


I’m doing a 45 minute intro to Google Apps for Education presentation for all our staff. Our Google Apps for Education only has Documents/Drive, Groups, Calendar and Sites on the staff side (less on the students side). We can only share things within our own domain. What should I make sure a cover? Any ideas for interactive exercises?

Shoutouts!
Give props to Darius Clarke for me. He asked me about accessing the live feed. I told him that I had Back to School Night. He recommended flipping BTSN and then having Q&A with the parents in the classroom. Brilliant! I wish I had more time to do that. Next year. KB
