Google Educast #095: Anonymous Chupacabra

  • Segment 3: Chrome and Android:

    • Google Keep released for Chrome - Google’s new reminder app has now integrated with Chrome. The nice thing about the Chrome app is that you can keep it up all day. It opens as a pop up window and instantly syncs with the app on your Android phone or tablet. (KZ)

  • Segment 4: Classroom Applications:

Neat use for Google Sites. Our fourth grade teachers are using Google sites to drive a research project. (KZ)

This unit was created to:

teach research and non-fiction writing skills, draw connections between previous units on the American Revolution and the Civil War and events in the world today, develop student awareness of other nations and cultures

Note the comments on last year's papers from World Bank economists who volunteered to act as mentors. They were also able to correspond with a New York Times reporter and skype with a staff person from the Democracy Now! radio show.

This year's students corresponded with children in an Irish Immersion school and people involved in efforts to revive the Hawaiian, Menominee, and Sauk tribes. You can see their emails in the Our Pen Pals and Mentors section of the site.


Sharing a link via email to a pdf in Drive.

People open their email on the iPad.

Clicking the link or copying and pasting it into any browser on an iPad only shows it as a preview. Preview is an image but not a pdf file.

Is there a way to view it as a PDF so you can open the in another app on the iPad?

Users should not have to leave the iPad and go to a computer.

  • Shoutouts and Feedback- always a good idea to let the audience know about sessions, workshops, keynotes- and events happening in International Education.
